    Come on, lets see who has the worst salt creep in the land. :)

    Here's mine, albeit an old pic from a couple of years ago...This was on the end of my sump where the Jebo skimmer was. :p

    Just curious, what caused it to get like that?

    lol, um, you're testing my old brain cells here :p that pic is about 7 or 8 years old I think, I was running a Jebo skimmer, I think I had a modified pump on the skimmer which caused a lot of bubbles to exit the skimmer into the sump compartment causing the salt creep. I think. :blush:

    I always taste saltcreep when i go to the engine room.... Cleaner salt than that is hard to find.... Even use the saltcreep on the boat as spice whenever Alida packs boiled eggs in the boatpack
