Odd happening?!?!?

I have a thin skin like stuff shooting out of the return bar of the canister filter. The material is like a good or mucus when touched. Thoughts? I net Filtered it out and it continued coming. What should I do?

Sounds like a bio film build up in the intake, and return tubes.

Even if the tubes and canister are only 2 weeks old?

Possibly something in the media is reacting with each other inside the canister. Maybe take it apart and see if there is slime inside the canister.

I am going to look inside and see if I can figure it out.
