White fuzzy ball in tank?

This is odd.....

Okay, today I noticed a white fuzzy ball sticking to part of my filter.

I have a betta in a 10 gallon tank with a few live plants, and a couple fake ones.



What is it?

Odd.. looks like it could be fungus growing on a piece of gravel, or slime mold on gravel.. whatever it is, remove it and make sure there isn't any anywhere else.. vacuum the substrate real good.

!!

I think I just saw two more on the other side(of the filter)... Or maybe they were there before and I didn't notice. Going to remove them of course

Looks to me like a piece of old food with algae on it.
I get it a lot in my tanks if I miss a couple pieces after feedings here and there

Fungus on rotting food, very common. But also a sign you put too much food in. Everything should be gone in 2 minutes, if anything is left after that ... cut back how much you feed.
