Welcome to Fishforum.com.

I initially thought it's a hydra but I could be wrong. What is the estimated size of that white stuff?:)

Me too!

I have a 40 gal. and the entire bottom is covered with this stuff including the rocks and plants. Lost three fish last week. Have tried the vacuum but no luck. Keeps growing. Pulled some out and noticed that its like glue. All the rocks were stuck together with this web like slime. HELP!!!!

All that I have been able to find is that it is likely slime algae. Cause is the normla one, too much of something and sometimes too much light. Often it shows up when you have little or no circulation in an area of the tank.
