Not sure what the reaction is, but I've had it on some CO2 tubes for years.
No problems that I can attribute to it at all in that time.  If it is easy
for you to get at the tube and replace it, go ahead.  If not leave it.  I
saw more of this when running Yeast CO2 than with Cylinder CO2.  I believe
moisture has something to do with the reaction.
