I just purchased some new anacharis from the LFS but only 's a day or two later and I'm noticing a light brownish-tan salty type deposit on some of the leaves. It looks like brownish sand/salt on a bunch of the leaves. Is this something I should keep in the aquarium? The fish don't seem to mind it... for now... I ask because I'm sure some of you have seen this before. I'm wondering whether this ever touched the saltwater tank but it didn't seem to be the case.

Could it be brush algae? tiny fuzzy tufts?

Someone told me it's deposits from having been in a tank too brightly lit and with lots of co2. I washed it off (lost a lot of leaves) but it looks much better and the leaves will grow back. The tank looks awesome with them in there and the fish love hiding in the spaces between the ferns.
