I’ve never seen this before in my tanks and it just started growing in my planted 55 gallon tank. It’s not spreading at an overly alarming rate but it’s still really gross. Looks like a plasma or slime. It’s only on the sand.

I'm usually ok with algae but that looks sick... Like a bad sick, gross sick. I have no idea what type of anything that is!
