Does anyone know what this is???

Just wondering if anyone knows what this is. It was growing rapidly only on one of my live rocks until I tried sucking some of it out and now it has attached to my live sand in various places. I’ve asked a few ppl and no one seems to know for sure. I’ve been told possibly a sponge of sorts. Tank has only been running for 2 months and this started about a week ago. Oh and when I suck it out it smells horrible! Any help with this and how to get rid of it would be much appreciated

If you can suck it out, it might be slime. But yes it could also be a sponge, in which case you are lucky to have such a rare thing to look at while it lasts.

Question

on the pics it kind of looks the same as when fish food rots and makes a little slimy cloud thing.
if it is that it can just be sucked out
not really sure it is though...

I purchased some plant mats that had something like that. Gel grow, I think it was called. I am with the folks that say it is slime mold and should be removed.
