Nopox will eventually go a tea colour looks like you dry skimming so skim a bit wetter

Changed the carbon recently?

Mine goes really dark when I put fresh carbon in.
Must be some of the dust...

rowaphos does the same. I've not used no pox, so can't comment on that.

nopox requires you to skim wet for a start :) but no, doesn't seem to change the colour.
