Transparent slimy thing sticking to my plants

I have a 6 litre fishbowl with some plants in it. It was just an experiment but I ended up liking it. Today I noticed a transparent slimy thingy sticking to the stems of 2 plants. I got it off, but I am worried. Any advice?

Might be getting too much direct sunlight if it's algae. You can also add more plants. There's a great video on YouTube where a guy grows moss in small containers like that. He cuts it from a rock in central park NYC. Definitely check it out

Is the fishbowl only with plants or also stocked with a fish? What plants do you have in there?
