Whoa! d-limonene solvent is a liquid cleaning agent and would kill fish and you if you ingested it. I think he was refering to Purigen the ammonia absorbing resin and got it mixed up.

Thank you all for your coments. Kind of still wondering if the carbon within the filter will slowly get my tank clear on its own though? Of course with regular water changes.

Bala, the activated carbon will eventually remove the coloration. You may have to change it as the carbon will saturate quickly if there isn't a lot in the filter pad.
