Do you have any soil in your substrate? Your fish might be stirring it up. Or maybe it's carbon, if you use any activated carbon in your tank.

I think the "fuzzy stuff" is a photographic effect, not something in his tank.

Nevertheless, it is hard to tell exactly what the black stuff is since it's small and somewhat out of focus. Maybe it's the tiny beginnings of beard algae?

Any chance you can take a clearer shot with a camera of these rocks there? The rocks look like they're beginning to have brown algae grow on them, but too blurry to tell really..

If you can't get pictures, googel image results for black beard algae see if that's like what you have? Does the stuff "fly off" easily when you wave your hand over it? Or is it attached like a lil plant almost?
