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.

Yes they are live plants and I hope it doesn't take over my tank!

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.

Ops, lol, I should of asked how many plants.

You could try asking Bryon, he knows alot about plants and maybe he has seen this before if it is plant related.

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.

Byron.
