Newish tank? Looks like diatoms. You can scrub them off quite easily if it bothers you.

I agree looks very " diatom" -ish to me. hermits will eat it , u can clean it , normal tank stuff. A result of silicates in your water.

Not at all. Completely harmless just a bit of an eye sore. On a side note this is a freshwater tank right?
