Exclamation (URGENT) What is this white thing?

This apeared in my aquarium suddenly. I woke up there was nothing, 6 hours later when I came back home I saw this. It doesnt moves or anything, only with the water flow. The filter seems to filter it fine, but I am not sure and still need to know it.

Here is the picture:

i've had that in my tank before .. i believe it's a bacteria bloom or algae bloom i'm not sure .. my baby sailfin mollies would eat it off of the surface of everything in the tank till there was no more .. then they would wait for it to grow back .. and they would eat it again .. @_@ ..

is it kinda slimey when u touch it?

what i did to get rid of it was soak everything with a sterilizing solution (pre-mix: 5 Tablespoon AQ salt (can be more if you'd like) + 1 cup distilled white vinegar + warm water .. in a big bucket) .. then let it soak for like 2-3 hrs .. and after that rinse rinse rinse rinse rinse rinse rinse with hot water .. then leave everything outside in a strong sun to dry (uv will kill whatever bacteria it was)

Could it be your filter spitting out filter media into your tank?

Happened to me once, thought it was mold or something just turned out to be cottony stuff from the filter.
