The substance material in my Mutiny reactor is starting to turn a rust brown color in spots. Is that normal? Thanks.

Do the spots look like powder or more slimy?

After almost a year, definitely have some bacterial looking growth in mine (although I'm not sure what could survive in that environment).

Curious to see what others have experienced.

No spots; it just looks like the ribon has been stained a rust color brown. It has only been running for about a week too.

That doesn't sound right. You may want to repost over in the Reef Chemistry forum.

Almost as if the ozone was reacting with something in the water. When you post over there, be sure to describe your current water parameters and source water for mixing water and evaporation top-offs.

Good luck. I'll still be following along.

You could be right because it is only on the substrate directly below the inlet.

All of mine has a brown tint to it now. It has been running for 7 months or so. I've pulled the media out and washed it at one point but the brown it in the media itself.

Thanks for your response. I guess it could be normal.
