    Default Brown slime or gfo issue?

    I opened my sump and it has a bunch of rusty looking stuff everywhere. Do y’all think it’s brown slime or is it possibly an issue with my gfo reactor? Here’s a shot of what my filter socks look like. Thanks!!

    I know nothing, but sure looks like oxidation to me.

    Do you mind elaborating. I’ve been in the hobby over 10 years and never heard of it!

    Simply put because I'm a simpleton. Oxidation is when things go bad. But there are different levels of bad. Like that screw that use to be shiny and silver but now is dull and a little rough to brown and crusty. Or that Apple or Pear that is cut in half and allowed to sit on the counter for a short while and it goes from being nice and white to brown in color.
    GFO, O = oxide.

    Look like gfo. I would put in a new sock and take out the gfo to confirm it nothing else
