What the Deuce?

So I was doing a water change tonight and I noticed this stuff growing all over the sump in my 28G Nano.

 

I am running Floss/Cheato/Chemi Pure Elite in the filter chamber.

 

Parameters have been stable for the last three months.

 

Temp: 80F

Salinity: 1.025

Alkalinity: 8.3

PH: 8.2

Calcium: 446

Mag: 1400

Ammonia: 0ppm

Nitrite: 0ppm

Nitrate: 0ppm

Phosphate: 0ppm

 

The stuff looks almost sponge like. It is growing in all four chambers on the glass, floors, and walls. It's white and kind of fuzzy looking.

 

On a side note I noticed a new white snail or slug in the tank today feeding off the rocks. Could they be related?

 

Any help always appreciated!

I believe those are some sort of sponge. I have those in the filter chambers of my RSM 130. I don't know much about them, maybe somebody wants to chime in who knows more than me.

 

EDIT: Those look like white pineapples... maybe Spongebob is inside? :lol:
