White slime build up on new air hose.

Recommended Posts

Hey there, I just noticed that some of the new rubber items in my tank have a white slime coating on them. Not a lot just on the air hose and the suction caps holding the filter. The older suction caps dont seem to have it. The tank is clean and all the fish are happy so I'm not worried. Has anyone else had this or know what the cause is?

Mitch.

Yeah I've had the same thing on every rubber thing I've ever put in a tank, I think it has something to do with the bacteria maybe or the protective coating on rubber or a combination of both but I know it is normal & has no adverse effect on the tank, just rinse it off when you do a water change or clean & it won't return after a clean or two :mrgreen: Pretty sure someone will know the science of it :mrgreen:
