white stuff

i've noticed in my 10 gallon tank that is divided it looks like there is white powder like stuff on the decor and on top of the heater.... i do have a live plant on one side of the tank... could that be causing it?

Does it appear right after a water change or a few days after? I have no idea what it could be but maybe we can figure something out.

Have you put in anything new? Plants or decorations?

I have no idea what it could be. Are you using the same water conditioner you've always used?

Could it be hard water deposits?
I have hard water and it does build up on my heaters, filter, and glass. It can be a little difficult to remove.

i had the same issue in my tank...the cause for me turned out to be the white stones... although i washed them extensively to avoid it,maybe change the stones in your tank if you have any?
