I wasn't looking for it either! But it was cheaper than $49 for a hood with lights for the new 20gal L I got last week.

Btw... It looks like the tan may have been salt water.. Do I just rinse it really really well for freshwater??

They can effect the tank.

And yes, they are calcium deposits (At least from what I could think of from your description).

Normally, I bleach out any used tank I get then rinse it out REALLY well.
