Not really sure. Have you tried using your mag float or whatever you use. Looks like maybe just buildup of some kind. Kinda looks like my freshwater tank after a water change.

Did you just set that tank up? It does look like build up, and it reminds me of new substrate, while it settles, and at the end it looks like a baby powder bomb went off! Lol

Yeah cause I tried my bristle sponge that I use on my 43 gallon and it's not coming off at all. Cause the tank was cycled for 3 weeks and I just put a seahorse in today and had a live rock in there for a few days

Looking closer I see what you mean. What did you originally clean that tank with, prior to setting it up? Looks almost like a residue left buy a cleaner. But I kind of doubt it, because then I am almost sure it would kill off anything in the tank. Hmmmm?????

Yeah but I don't use anything on the inside at all just my sponge brush to clean the residue off the inside for when it fogged up every time that's it

I had that issue once so I added a power head after I scraped it off (they make really sharp plastic pieces for that stuff) and pointed it up so i have a lot of agitation at the top if my tank and I've not had much issue since. Not sure if its the same gunk that was on mine though.
