Had to buy a replacement quick-disconnect assembly for my Rena XP canister filter. Didn't buy directly from PlanetRena, but rather from an online vendor. Appears to be in original manufacturer packaging. The o-rings and the joints are covered in some white goop. It almost looks like diaper rash ointment. It's been years since I bought my XP brand new, but I'm pretty sure there was no goop on the assembly.

Is this what o-ring lubricant looks like? Is this safe for the aquarium livestock to be in contact with the water? Bizarre - have never seen this before.

Thanks, everyone! WHEW! My poor L260 pleco has been in a too-tiny 10-gallon q-tank for over a week while I waited for the replacement quick-disconnect. Glad to know I can get things up and running again without further delay!
