jello like clear mucus during hypo

While treating my fish with hypo, I noticed this jello like, mucus looking substance sitting at the bottom of the tank in small clumps, perhaps 1/2" long. It feels slimy. I vacuum it up along with everything else everyday when I perform my 50% PWC to control ammonia.

Anyone know what that is? Did anyone else see that during hypo?

cheers

W.
