I have no idea I would wait for the experts to tell you exactly what it is. I can tell you that it is not good that is about it. Im sure you already had that thought though. It almost looks like sponge die off however that is a shot in the dark.

I want to say it looks like that start of dinoflagellates...possibly, sponges, it's kind of hard to tell.

I have no idea on specific ID, but it looks fungal to me. How long has this tank been up? Any measureable ammonia?
