White Filmy Pieces Floating Around My Tank?

Over the past few weeks I've noticed small pieces of clear, filmy pieces floating around my tank. They stick to everything, my fake plants, decorations, gravel, ect. They're slimy and making my water slightly cloudy. I don't think it's because my tank is dirty, even after a water change they're floating around. Can someone please tell me what it is and if it's harmful?

If you don't see it coming straight off the fish...it could be from an additive.

Any plants?

And I know that API Stress Coat+ does that because of the aloe. You may need to just up your water changes to clear it.

Well it's definitely the stress coat, I use it to condition my tap water.

Then it's not harmful, though I totally understand the frustration of having a tank that 'looks' dirty ^^;

Went by petsmart and picked up some prime. I threw out my stress coat and did a water change. My tank already looks dramatically better!
