Zeolite right now is my last bet, hope it solves the issue else its going to be very hard to clean the tank...

Here you go,
These were taken right now, the tank glass was much worse before this. The deposits on the power head can also be seen.

The very next day the front glass of my aquarium had a white buildup, I tried to...
