Growth in tank-white flowing leaflike substance

Greetings:

Yesterday I noticed a feather like growth white in color growing on the Intake pipe of the water filter. This growth waves around with the current as if it were a very fine leaf. The tank a 30 gal model is made up of the following: a gravel substrate, several artificial rocks, two large pieces of drift wood, (7) plants mostly ferns... and populated by (8) Neon Tetras. All the materials inside the tank are approved and sold by a reputable dealer. The Tank has been in service for (6) weeks now after (5) weeks of fishes cycling. What is this stuff? will it be harmful to the fish and tank? if it is harmful, how do I eradicate it from the tank? Patiently waiting for comments, suggestions and recommendations.

Wipe it off with clean paper towel folded into fourths, and see if it comes back.
