White goo on plant??

It isn't even a real plant for goodness sake! But I just noticed all this white stretchy crap on this one plant of mine. I just washed it all off ~ should have taken a picture.

Have you ever seen this? Fish are all okay ~ I wanna say it was an old price tag, but throughout all the branches?

It looked as though it snowed lightly on the plant. It was never there before...

Thoughts?

Biofilm, fungus, molds or white stringy poop of your fish. Biofilm is most likely. Harmless.

Really? These fish are so tiny ~ it was an awful lot ~ and it def is not white stringy poop. I have seen that.

Interesting...

I have never seen this in any tank I have ever had ~

I occasionally find clumps of biofilm in my plants when I am cleaning. Sound to me like that is what you are dealing with.

Yup. Definitely biofilm. Harmless but annoying.

All right then. Interesting that it is only on ONE plant, right in the middle of them all. Off to research it because I have never had this in my tanks.

Do you guys think because I have micro-mini fish in this large tank ~ this is a contributing factor?
