Probably some type of algae? It would certainly be a nutrient rich place for algae to grow....

It looks like fungus to me as well. I have seen it cover a piece of veggie I forgot to remove in less than 24hrs. Just remove anything uneaten after feeding. Leftover food can contribute to ammonia levels as well.
