[Histonet] inverted meniscus

Today while perfroming an xylene purity check after recyling xylene on a 
CBG recycler, I noticed that the meniscus  between the DH2O and Xylene is 
inverted...that is convex instead of concave.  I have done this check many 
times( you add exactly 15 mls of water to exactly 85 mls xylene, invert 
and allow to settle out and observe the meniscus at the separation 
site for changes in volume of water) and have never seen it invert.  The 
glass cyclinder was clean , we repeated three times and still same 
results.  Anyone have a clue as to why?  CBG did not have an answer .
