Cloudy Flourish?

I just started a new bottle of Flourish comprehensive, which I use for dosing iron/traces. This new bottle seems very different from the first one I had. The liquid is much more transparent and yellowish (vs. dark brown for the first bottle) and it seems to be clouding the water significantly for like a half hour after dosing. I've tried shaking the bottle well, with no difference. Anyone ever run across this? Should I throw out the bottle?

*Pssst - Greg Watson's Dry Ferts Page. Cheaper in the long run.

To answer your question, I've never tried the product but if it's clouding on you I'd say it's not a good batch.

Hum, I used the Flourish products for a while and never encounted what you're describing.

I also made the switch to greg watson's ferts and its def. worth it.

Yeah, I actually have dry ferts, but I had bought a couple bottles of Flourish before I heard about Greg Watson, and I saw no reason to let them go to waste. In the case of this particular bottle, of course, now I do.

It's normal for a new bottle to have a pale yellowish brown coloration when first opened. By the time it's used up the color will have darkened to the dark brown you are used to.

As far as the clouding goes, that sounds rather unusual. I would recommend checking with Seachem and see what they say. If they decide it's bad they may send you a new bottle.

I agree with Purrbox about the color of the solution, it is common for a new bottle to be lighter in color then the older bottle, but have never had it cloud my tank water, Check with seachem
