Does anyone know of a quick fix for this? I woke up this morning and it looks like it just started forming...

There are chemicals you can add that will get rid of it if you follow the directions...but this is just a temp fix. A regiment of water changes, feeding less (as most people overfeed without realizing), and not having your lights on for long period of time. The solution for a ton of issues.
