I'm sorry, I can't tell what you are referring to in the picture. Any way you can add and arrow or circle the area in question?

Is this thing mobile? Is it rigid or soft? It's hard to tell really but perhaps more info may help.

Ok, now I understand. That is probably just dieoff. You could try to use a turkey baster or something to blow off the rock, that should remove some. Or give your snails some time to clean it up. I wouldn't say it's anything to worry about though.

I think that's the way the Silver Surfer was born. Good luck with your alien growth.

I agree with Fluff, just normal die-off of either plant matter, sponge, or detritus.
