Stuff coming out of SunSun filter


I have had my new tank up and running for about a week now. My spray bar has just started shooting out a bunch of clear looking flakes. Anyone else experience anything like this? Was there something i was supposed to peal off somewhere?

It may be some biofilm that has accumulated along the tubing.

+1 on the biofilm. I get it on my return pump hose from my sump all the time. Every few weeks, I'll usually put a net under my loc-line and rub the hose to loosen off most of the biofilm.
