My tank has been recycling this week.
I've been doing 20% water changes 2 times a day.


Today I see a bunch of salt like grains floating about...
the spray bar has a ton of it.

The fish seem fine though.

Is this some kind of fungus ??

After further cleaning, I see that its not only sand, but a white flakey material...

My guess is that it's the white gunk from my intake and output tubes, described here:
