Hi
I am facing a problem

I bought a external canister filter a couple of days ago to make water cleaning easy since I have an live planted tetra aquarium.
However since a couple of days fungus like growth has started building up in the inlet and outlet pipes of the canister filter..
I have a foam and carbon and ceramic media in the canister filter . The pH level of the water is around 7.9 ~ 8.1
Have no idea what so ever how to get rid of the fungus growth..

it should disappear shortly it is as you say a fungus but it does'nt affect fish unless they are stressed or your water quality is poor.I'm sure most of us have seen the white fluffy stuff on wood that we've introduced into the aquarium at some point(I know its in pipe work).just clean it off you should be fine.

You can clean the pipes with a bottle brush.
