Hi, as automotive mechanics, we touched all kinds of things with our bare hands. Today's mechanics wear latex gloves and use water based chemicals.

Immediately flush the tank until you see no more antifreeze or green slime, and start over (if you haven't already). I've heard of instances of gelled antifreeze before, usually the result of mixing two different types of antifreeze in a car's radiator. Without exception, of the cases I've heard of, the gelled antifreeze has been highly corrosive. While your waste tank isn't a car radiator, and has a lot fewer metal parts, it will do no good to any metal parts that are present.

Your theory about mixing antifreeze with aqua-chem is probably right on the money.

I'm sure Bob remembers the early days of Propylene Glycol and the car radiators. Hasn't been an issue for many years, but was quite the mystery in the first and second year of use.

Think twice next time Bob attends a rally and brings a dish to the potluck.

Bob, have you been making moonshine in radiators again?

Looks very similar to what came out of our fresh water tank when I forgot to drain it before storage one summer.

Algae gel. It just took a couple of tank flushes with bleach to clear it all out.

What strain doesn't need light to form?

Green slime=chlorophyl=light? I tink.

I've now got my jar cooking in the cold dark AS trunk.

Veeeeerrrry interesting.

hmmmm good point - whatever the strain of the critter, it looked strangely similar to that slime pictured above. It slurped its way out of the drain valve and quivered down the driveway.

The mystery deepens, but bleach the foe.

Either that or feed it until it evolves feet and can walk away on its own! Since you've already held it in your hand, it has probably imprinted on you, and thinks of you as "mama." So even if it runs amok and eats the rest of humanity before some caped crusader can kill it, you'll be safe.
