I have seen that fluffy, goo-hair gunk. If I remember it is an algae that gets dirt stuck in it. I found it hard to remove. It does not really cling, but gets tangled up and pulls the plants out when you pull the algae out.

Unfortunately I took the tank down before I figured out how to get rid of it.

Scroll down to Rhizoclonium. Maybe that is it?
