I have a similar issue. for me, it looks like a white powder is resting on top of my one plant. it's the plant closest to the filter, and the area I live in does have hard water. I just figured it's like, lime or something, but maybe I'm wrong >> It doesn't seem to be affecting the fish's health or anything so I don't think it's much of a problem. I'm gonna vacuum it all off when I do a water change :)

Are you sure the powdery looking stuff isn't just little tiny air bubbles? Sometimes when I change the water on my 4 gallon the heater will be covered in air bubbles and it looks kind of powdery.

You don't use Stress coat for your water conditioner, do you? I used to use it and had swirly stuff in the bowl and stuff hanging off my betta. It was freom the aloe vera I think.

maybe there is too much iron in your water, try to buy spring water at the store that has no chlorine or iron. just use that and see what happens
but dont forget to get ur fish used to the new water by mixing it in a little at a time each water change.
