Question about Salt Creeps

I am noticing that around the botom of the tank there is an area where salt creep happens. Should I be worried about it? I'm pretty sure that it is coming out of the bottom of the tank because whenever I work inside my tank I always wipe the glass off after I'm done. I know salt creeps are normal but not around the bottom glass and lip of the tank. I'm worried

I don't think that I have ever seen salt creep on the bottom of the tank. On the sides at the bottom, yes. Do you mean when you open the cabinet door and stick your head in and look up?

Can we get a pic? If water were to run down the tank, you may not be able to wipe all of it out of the frame, and that could be what your seeing.

Woops, I mean the bottom part of the front glass near the black lip. I'll take a picture the next time it shows up.

Yeah, I get that too. I attribute it to just the drips running down the front of the glass as I reach in during regular mainenance.

Is there any way to minimize salt creep other than wiping down the top of the tank regularly?

Only thing you can really do is minimize the amount of splash.
