Melting heater?

Is my heater melting? I haven't let it run outside of water and it hasn't been subjected to any extreme temps. Never gets higher than 80 F.

From the picture it just looked like grime that has dried on it. You can try scrubbing it with a clean rag or paper towel just make sure to rinse really well to minimize the risk of contaminating an aquarium with chemicals.

I scrubbed it pretty good (I was gone on vacation and the person I left in charge of my fish didn't scrub very well) and it came off eventually. Thanks! :)

Mine did the same thing, but it won't scrub off. And in one of my tanks that is acrylic, where the heater was sitting is now a funny texture so I took it out.
