Seachems Flourish Comprehensive colour

I have used this maybe three times and, in light of my current tank water issue I may be a little overly cautious. Here is a shot of the flourish in the cap... I was certain it was greener than that. I know that the label on the bottle is mostly green and I am used to seeing fertilizer products for ground plants that are green even though I get that a brown or other colour is probably the native colour of a fert. I would rather not be putting colour additives into the water but I also don't want to put bad fertilizer in either.

I shook it before pouring too.

I likely wouldn't have used it anyway, seems silly to add anything unnecessary before getting the nitrites settled down.

Jeff.

Flourish is a brownish liquid, not green - mine looks like your photo.

Mine looks greenish-black in color but I keep it in the fridge. Maybe the temperature has something to do with it?

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

OK, so my green thoughts were incorrect.... maybe with all the water testing I have just gotten confused.... yellow, to green, blue, purple.... ARRRRGGGHHHH!

I probably should be keeping it in the fridge.
