my filtration system(filters and skimmer) is overrun by a weird looking white blob. it resembles a larvae of some kind to me with a protruding "fan" extending from the main body. it seems to attatch itself to a surface and grow. somehow i got rid of them a few months ago, but they are back with a vengance and are over whelming. any ideas? or solutions?
