Default HydrX full of bugs?

about 1 month ago i water cooled my system. unsure of how much fluid it would take i bought a enough (4) HydrX to treat 1 gallon of distilled water
i used about a half gallon and the remainder was left in the gallon jug and set on my balcony so no one would get into it

i have developed a minor leak in my rad box and wanted to add some more coolant

BUT

the HydrX is a dark brownish green - nothing like the vivid day glow green it started as

is this contamined with algee? should i use it? i'm thinking NO

+++pics coming as soon as i find the cable for my camera +++

Bit surprised this happened, although placing it in the sun was the worse possible place.

Wonder how much would have been needed to prevent this if 2 weren't enough?

An interesting experiment. I wonder how the algae "got in there"? I'm assuming you didn't have the jug top removed the whole time, although it's off in the photo.
