    My tomato clowns did the same thing. When I bought they were quite orange but became brownish with time. It could be diet related....

    i have been using it for almost 2 months without problem. Some drops on brine shrimp and nori since thats mostly what my achilles tang eat.

    The contents for 1 mL: vitamin A (1500 IU), vitamin D (400 IU) and vitamin C (30 mg)

    The supplement i bought is called : Tri-vi-sol
