Exclamation diff fluid color

changed out front and rear diff fluid today. both diffs poured fluid out of the fill caps.?.?.? I'm assuming that they're overfilled? Question is the color of the fluid. The snot that was in the truck was a grayish greenish color. Is that indicative if water contamination? If not why the severe color difference. Also, would overfilling the diffs cause any problems? when I filled them back up I only put the normal amount. (I stooped when it started coming out the fill hole.

This is where I'm supposed to write something witty and funny; or something.

Normal on all accounts. Overfilling will not cause any issues. Check to make sure your swivel balls are full as sometimes the fluid makes its way from them into the axle housing in front.
