That would be mineral deposits. Chances are you have hard water. I have a FW tank that has been set up for a little over 5 years now and I don't see that on the tank and I have bubble curton in the back of the tank.

I do know that the water and vinegar solution will remove it.

I get those same deposits on all my tanks. I just use really hot water and some elbow grease and it usually comes off with no problem. I suppose the vinegar reacts with it to make it come off super easy, so maybe next time I'll use that.

FYI my water measures "very hard"

Thank you so much for all your help. I'm back into the hobby with a new vigor!
