Green skimmate?

hey everyone,

I recently switched to an Eheim 1262 pump on my Aqua C EV150.
(I was using a Mag 7)

It's opened up all the way, and skims like nuts. Constant foam. I empty the collection cup once every two or three days as compared to once a week to two weeks, depending on bioload, feeding, etc.

What I've noticed is the gunk coming out is green.... not the brown crap I was used to. Is this just wet skim?

Thanks. not quite as smelly, so that's a positive for sure.
