Sounds like it could possibly be diatoms on your betta leaf?

Cyanobacteria/blue-green algae does have sort of a swampy smell to it. I'm not sure if it is harmful to fish but I believe it can cause skin irritation.

I think it is generally caused by low nitrates, poor water circulation and excess lighting. I had an outbreak in a couple of my tanks, and it went away after I increased the flow, cut down my lighting and dosed nitrates.
