Noticed that the tubing is collecting / growing what looks like mold on the inside of the tubing. You cannot completely eliminate all the moisture inside the tubing when storing it until next use. I'm afraid the moldy looking substance might contaminate the tank. Is there a way to clean the 50 feet of tubing or should I discard a pricey but necessary piece of equipment and buy another.
Thanks to all you Oscar Lovers.....

Welcome to our community. I wouldn't worry about it, you get this type of thing growing on pipework, especially on filter pipework. However, it won't cause any problems so is no need to throw everything away.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

I have had the same type of mold in my python water changer for over 10 years. It's a non-issue. If it bothers you that much, soak the tubing in a 1:5 ratio of bleach and water or use a ratio of 1:2 hydrogen peroxide and water.
