Depending on your lighting, it could be the uv affecting the color of plastic tubing.

My 12 gallon nano is evaporating much faster now that I have a fan hooked up. Just need to keep an eye on it.

Regretfully I will need a bit more of a description to know what your refering to. Are you talking about your skimmer? Or some kind of airstone? Whats turning yellow? The airline thats in the water or the airline thats outside the water?

You should replace the evaporated water every few days with fresh water (unsalted)
