White plant like fungus?

Ive had this tank for like 4+months and I have never seen it before. Its like a white plant looking thing, kinda see through. I'm quite curious what it is and can it hurt any of my fish?

Sounds like some sort of macroalgae that has "gone sexual" in your tank (ie: released all it's gametes into your water). I would do a water change as soon as you can. Plants going sexual can deplete oxygen in your tank quickly.

Any chance you can get a picture?
