i've been watercooled for a little more than 2 months right now,
i didn't add any additives thinking that i would do it later (silly me, it took me 2 year to build it youda thunk i'd learn that i am not the most motivated person) and the water has turned a brown green color (brown to the naked eye, when a picture is taken of it it turns green) I think it may be corrosion but it did happen all of a sudden after about 1 month of cooling sorta like an algal (sp?) infestation.

All i know is that I am not looking forward to cleaning it out, any tips?
