Fungus? Mold? Any ideas?

I posted this topic in a different area of the forum a while back and didn't get a whole lot of feedback. Hopefully this area is better for it.

I noticed white web like stuff growing on the hairs on my salvania, as well as white specks growing on my tank right at the waterline and on one piece of my decor. The elephant never had any white on it. Doesn't seem to be affecting the rest of the plants, substrate, etc in the tank. Any idea what this stuff is? It's definitely growing. Should I be worried? Any steps I can take to get rid of it?

Again, the white stuff is NOT the hair of the salvania, but rather growing over the top of it.

Do you use any kind of water products or additives like easy balance? Some of those can cause this appearance.

The only thing I add to the water is Prime and a bit of stress coat. Stopped the stress coat in case that was what was causing it... although I've been using stress coat for a while.
