What is this taking over my LR

I have no idea what this is. I had a 5 year old stone fish die on me out of nowhere the other day. Then I noticed this stuff on some of my LR. I dont know if they have anything to do with eachother but I still want to know what this stuff is. It is not left over food. If anyone could help let me know.

Are you referring to the white stuff. Can you describe it?

Are they curly white calcified shells? If they are they are a spirobid worm. I've got tons. They are harmless filter feeders.
