Sponge or algae?

This stuff has been on my rock since about a week from when I got it. At first I thought it was algae but now I am thinking different. It looks like it is taking some type of form, kinda like a q-tip sponge. Looks kinda crappy and is not removed with boiling water or scrubbing with a toothbrush. Any Ideas?
Thanks all.
