Looks bacterial. Could be from your TDS being up there fueled by the contaminates getting in your water.

O TDS water and some water changes over time it should clear up.

Battling the same thing right now. So far I've been going in with a toothbrush before a water change and scrubbing as much of it off as I can. Its definitely helping, some progress is being made.

Blow iff with turkey baster and siphon. Looks bacterial .
Try reducing white lighting and add liquid bacteria such as bacter 7 during day and 1ml of peroxide at night to see if it retracts. ChemiClean may also work on this substance
