White smooth material on LR

My 46 gal FOWLR is about 1 month old. The LR has a partial covering (in some spots) that looks like white enamal paint. I believe that it is spreading. It is perfectly contoured to the rock like coraline algea. Too bad it's not purple.

Any guesses as to what this is?

Without a pic, I would tend to guess a sponge of some sort.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
