Black Silicone Question.

One of my tanks had a root tab in it, and the black silicone in that location has turned orange.
I'm guessing that stuff in the root tab leeched into the silicone? Cause when I got the tank that wasn't there and that's the only thing I can think of that would cause it. Just wanna double check. :/

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

I think this is quite likely the reason. This might be iron. Not to worry about, anyway.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
