    This is normal or at least this is what I was told by customer service. I was worried by the exothermic reaction. Definitely don't put on a lid. The b powder is just as bad.

    Part A powder gets really hot and brown, brown will settle out to bottom after a little while. The part B actually cooled down when I mixed it and its clear with a few white crystals at the bottom.

    I filtered it through some kitchen roll since its going in a dosing container and I don't want a load of sludge at the bottom.
    Thanks guys

    I have my dosing tube right off the bottom, altho my tank isn't using enough to dose just yet.
