Default Post your mixes

Just curious to see what type of fluid everyone uses in their loops.

For myself, in 1 loop I have red fluidxp. In another one, i have distilled water + hydrx and another one distilled water and black dye.

I'm really happy with my fluid xp. It has good temps, and hasn't clouded my tubing yet (i'll have used it for almost a year). I'm re-doing my loop, and without the fluid xp, im not sure what to use. I don't want a green loop, and using dye as the only additive doesn't work!

Distilled + Hydrx. Doesn't matter though because I went the route of black tubing.

I was thinking about automotive antifreeze, its normally pretty good with different metals and doesnt get sticky or thick. how often do you change it out?
