Is This Rust On My Lily Pipe

Post by Hinchewortu » Tue Dec 04, 2018 3:22 am

If you look at the attached photo you can easily see what I'm referring to. Is this rust? I thought stainless steel wasn't supposed to rust. All of my shrimp died suddenly a couple months ago (after many months of happy breeding), and I've been trying to find the culprit for quite a while because I really want more shrimp. I used to have a fine stainless steel mesh rolled up inside the tube at one point to keep the shrimp out of the filter as well.
