White foam

Post by Sandman1969 on Fri Dec 25, 2015 5:16 pm

I have a build up of white foam around the output of my filter on the glass. Is this something I should be concerned about or is it just nothing?
Ammonia is between 0 & .25.

I get that during water change as the level drops. Dont know what it is, but seems to be harmless. Only happens on one tank, and its filtered by 2 canisters, no hobs. Been this way for years, have had several dif fish in the tank. No issues.

I have seen it before when the level gets to the point that the output splashes.
Using the same single 10g filer loaded with those pot scrubbers & floss.
