I've seen a spray at Petsmart that is supposed to stop it from forming. Unless you're looking for a way to stop the bubbles. Do you have a filter sock on your output into the sump?

I think it's just part of the hobby. I get salt creep on everything under my tank. LOL

Maybe try it again? If it was keeping bubbles from forming it might help with the salt creep.

I get it growing up in my tank onto the outside sometimes

All you'll have to do is make sure it stays clean, just shaking it in some PWC water will get a good amount of gunk off of it.
