White stuff in 20 gallon

Hey guys, I seem to have white stuff appearing on the top along the back of my tank. there is also a bit on the heater were the water level is. It also appears a little on the side of the filter. What is this stuff and how do I get rid of it?

If it is crusty like-it is lime/mineral deposits-harmless-I use a razor blade to get it off my glass tanks-vinegar will take if off plastic items (don't get vinegar in the tank water)

if it's real tough vinegar and some salt (the real kind, with big cubes) with a scrubbly pad should get rid of it, just not with water and fish in it :)
