    Most water cooling systems (when they're done properly anyway) are filled with a water based fluid that inhibits buildup and corrosion of metal parts. It is basically a type of anti-freeze similar to what you might use in your car. When you start adding stuff like food coloring, you're introducing a different chemical into a balanced system. I wouldn't say it WON'T work, but odds are good to screw things up.

    There are, however, several commercially available liquds that are already dyed different colors, some even neon hues to give you a bit more variety. I'd go that route since these liquids are generally tested and still maintain their cooling properties.

    Yeah, most of the time the "water-wetter" and many other names for it is found in various colors, and as Darth said some are neon like, some are UV reactive as well and so on. A variety can be found at www.xoxide.com or www.svc.com
