White hairs?

I set up a new tank last night and was going to begin the cycling this evening. I got home from work just now and saw these white hairs clinging to my decorations and plants. I have a uv sterilizer on until I put bacteria in. No nitrates as I’m pretty sure those have to be present for algae. No nitrites or ammonia either. What is this and how do I get rid of it?

Thank You
