White slimy stuff on roots?

My fishy recently had a case of fin rot, and I did 100% water changes for 7 days. I cleaned out the tank/equipment with vinegar, too. It seemed like no matter how many water changes I did, I was still finding little pieces of white stuff everywhere.

The fin rot cleared up, but now I'm noticing this wispy/gooky white stuff all over the plant leaves and roots, and on the surface of the water. It looks like this:



I siphoned out what I could when I did a water change, but there's still clumps of it in there. Should I be worried about it? And if so, how can I get rid of it?

it looks like some sort of plant root fungus or rot. You have to cut the infected parts off. Not sure what you should do afterwards.
