I am not a fan of adding any medications/preparations to a tank unless it is essential, and here it is not. I realize there are no fish in the tank, but I still would not dose medications. First, it may not all get removed, and antibiotics should never be adminstered without good cause. Second, it may well do no good anyway. I'm guessing this is swome sort of fungus, but only being on the rubber puzzles me; it may well be something toxic in the rubber leaching out for all I know.

The easy solution is to remove the object and deal with the "fungus."

Thanks. the rubber on the water circulator and on the intake output lines are both areas of least water circulation, which is prob why it was able to attach to this area. But its not on any rocks or the plastic parts of the intke hose which are prob also areas of lesser water circulation. could just be a rougher surface to grow on? in any case I;ll dissasemble and clean/scrub with very hot water, and replace. If it reoccurs I'll keep you all posted.
