White Stuff On My Filter....
I have a Whisper Power 30 Filter.... 29 Gallon tank.
For some reason, every few weeks or so, there is a build up up white stuff on the Filter (not just the nozzle, but the black part as well). I will usually wipe it off the black portion of the filter but not the nozzle. Is this white stuff good or bad? Something is telling me that it is calcium. I guess kuz milk, which has calcium in it, is white as well.
Possibly mineral deposits of some sort. TBH it should not cause much of a problem, But if your willing to keep cleaning it of, carry on. :)
I see white stuff on all my power filters, it's mineral deposits.
I usually wipe them off regularly, like you. If you leave them be they can harden and it can be a pain to get off. Vinegar usually works well for hardened mineral deposits.
