Tape stuff in my tank!?

Okay, so I was doing a water change and turned off my heater so the glass wouldn't crack.
I noticed the water level after filling the tank was too high, so I moved the heater up.
While doing that a burst of white tape-looking stuff came off of the suction cups and I was like WTH?!
Then I noticed it was on my air tube (the part that was submersed) even WITH the red marker-tip looking thing not submersed connecting the two wires which helps "stop damage" or whatever the box said.
It looks like rotten pieces of old tape but when I touch it it breaks into pieces and it's so odd!

I'm not 100% certain but could they be calcium/hard water spots? Did it brush off easily? I've never seen anything like that.. I've seen some white mold growing outside of the tank, like on the hood but never in the tank, behind a suction cup. That's why I'm thinking that it could be hard water deposits or a calcium buildup.

No, it's not behind the suction cups- ON the outside of them and the bubble tube.
It brushes off easily, and it's a second hand tank that has hard water deposits from it on the hood.
My water isn't hard, so...
