white stuff in my filter
looks like some form of algae? is it harmful?
my filter hasn't been going for long before the last time I checked, (a month tops) and that stuff wasn't there last time

Inside the filter itself? Coating your media? Maybe bio-matter? Does it clean off easily? How long has the filter been running?46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
5 gal QT
Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in

Looks kinda like hard water buildup. I get it on all sorts of aquarium stuff.

I do have hard water that leaves white stains, just usually its hard not soft and slimy is your buildup more slimy too?
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
