The CSM + B is a Green color when mixed?

Well mine is what I would call a kind of weird Green color.

So was wondering if anybody else has that color.

Thanks

Jeff

Do you have a picture? It sounds very strange; are you sure what you have is CSM+B?

My trace mixes (similar in composition to CSM+B) has always been a brown colour.

+1 agree mine has always been brown...are you adding excel/glut to prevent molding?

Fe3+ is brown while Fe2+ is green (just a wild guess)
Has it been this color since you get them? And where you get them?

Send a message via Yahoo to happi
are you adding ascorbic acid to it? if you are then the solution should looks green instead of brown, this is because ascorbic acid reduce the Fe EDTA to ferrous Fe.

Nope a light green color with brown on the bottom, all mixed with Distilled Water, nothing else added.

Seems will not mix totally.
