Could be an algea bloom. Is your tank cycled yet? What are your water parameters? If all is well, I would syphin the stuff out and do a water change.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
