Are those live plants?

I had something very similar and it took over my tank, it covered everyhing. I think I got it from the live plants. Once I took the plants out and did a massive water change it has been gone.

Hopefully someone else can help you since I am not sure if it is the same as what I had.

You could always try to qt the plants for a while and see if it will go away. I have no idea what you could treat it with.
Another thing, it could be from the drift wood.

I know when I first seen this in my tank I stepped up on water changes, and cleaned the decor each time, then finally I noticed it was mostly on my live plants. Once removed this slime, fungus thing went away. I only had java ferns and moneywort in my tank.

Are we looking at the sort of white haze stuff? I would do as Cassandra suggests. But first, what are your water parameters: ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH. And temp.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
