    It could be the by-product from your diy concoction. I do not know if it will affect the tank and it's inhabitant as I have not tried diy co2.
    If you've learnt, teach, if you have, give.
    Don't walk behind me as I might not lead, don't walk in front of me as I might not follow. Walk beside me, as my friend.

    diy reactor...maybe u can shoot a photo and show us, will be useful...
    i;ve tried diy co2, but not diy reactor....
    i got a feeling it's just those normal stuff that always accumulate as the co2 are not diffused fast enough than the rate they are produced....

    It's common with DIY CO2, I've seen threads about it in the past. I didn't read about anything harming the fish. Just remove it should be fine

    have a bubble counter between the diy co2 reactor and co2 diffuser. this should minimise the 'white stuff'.
    anyway, causes no harm. just remove it.
