    Different medications will create different colors, and some won’t dye the water at all. If the water is green, you probably used a medication containing malachite green, which WILL stain the silicone (sealant) as well as any plastic or acrylic it comes in contact with. Methylene blue and copper sulfate will turn the water blue, and have the same affect on silicone and acrylic. Metronidazole tends to taint the water yellow, but doesn’t stain.

    yes the colour is added on purpose after a few days the colour fades this is when you should do a 50% water change and reboost the medication.
