Advanced LRT is what you want to get, some people in the Mayhem's dye thread only recommend the Advanced LRT outside of acrylic tubing. PRO LRT was the one with major plasticizer issues and has been phased out by Primochill.

Get new fittings? Or tubing?
Try another liquid? Recommendations?
Hmm there's just no avoiding this. Oxidation will occur regardless of how you setup your loop/parts.
I would just clean it up and maybe add some polish since you have a transparent block top. Maybe you can try adding a drop or two of dishwashing liquid to reduce bubbles in your loop. It's possible that tiny air bubbles were stuck in your CPU block, hence the accelerated oxidation. If the dishwashing liquid starts to sud up while you are bleeding your loop, don't worry! The suds/bubbles will eventually settle after a few hours or a day.
As the others recommended, maybe a different additive aside from Dead Water would be better. I use the blue one
, but this clear one
is better for straight distilled loops.
