Green

Hi I was just wondering I moved my protein skimmer to a different tank and the liquid is a green color. I thought it was very interesting. I had a protein skimmer on this tank before and nother ever came out of it that was this color it was allways black.

Roger

I'm thinking you have "green water". Free floating algae spores in the water. It can be a common occurence in dirty tanks. Usually more associated with freshwater tanks. USMC Mike has a UV sterilizer which really helps to cut down on green water syndrome. After a few days that skimmer should sparkle clean your water and start producing black Nog.
