    Inside the filter itself? Coating your media? Maybe bio-matter? Does it clean off easily? How long has the filter been running?

    inside the filter where the water flows, and yes it does just whipe right off
    only about 2 months tops the filter has been running recently, its an older system though and I had used it before a few years ago in a gold feeder fish tank for my turtle
