    It happens when water bubbles burst and the water droplets splatter against the glass, sides or lights. Then the water evapourates and the salt stays behind ;)
    The effect is made worse when an airtsone is running in saltwater or excess bubbles created by the return pump or skimmer outlet.

    Believe it or not, there is a product out there that somehow prevents salt creep. I tried it, not expecting it to work, but it did. Now if I could only remember who makes it... I want to say coralife...

    Make sure it doesn't fall into the tank. You don't want it falling on any coral or anemones.
