outside of tank

by Lala27

There is a white crusty hardness taking over my fresh water tank. What is it? How do I get rid of it?

Thanks to all!!

Could be a few things. Hard water maybe you add salt?

calcium deposits...possibly the water ran down the side and was not cleaned up.

it's no big concern, just wash/scrub it off...won't hurt the fish
