Question White cottony like stuff on a tank decoration?

There's not really any other way to explain it. I have one tank decoration that is almost completely covered in transparent-ish white cottony stuff.

Anyone know what it is?

Without a picture I would guess mold or something rotting, like plant roots or the paint on the dec.

Think I have seen that before. It's weird, and hard to get rid of I found. (worked in pet store)

Just slime mold - common in some aquariums. Not dangerous, just ugly. Wash it off with hot water whenever you see it.. it will come back, but to stop it from building up so much wash your decorations more frequently - once every week or two. You can feel it starting to develop, but the longer it is between washing, the thicker it gets.

Thanks. I just wanted to know if it was dangerous or not. My betta seems to be acting just fine, though.
