    Hi all,

    Please refer to the atatched word doc. After a complete rescape of the LR in the tank, I found these on the walls of the sump. Any idea what they are and if they are something beneficial??

    Thanks in advance

    When grandma lets me! She has her days and nights mixed up. At 1:00 AM she wanted coffee. I've been trying to get her to go to bed for hours.
