What is this stuff growing on my rocks?


As the title says. I set this tank up about a week ago. Currently there are only four fry in this 10 gallon tank, which has a sponge filter and a water temp of about 80 degrees. I just noticed this odd looking stuff growing on the rocks I put in there, any idea what this is?

Perhaps Hemianthus callitrichoides?

I get that in my planted jars. It can be vacuumed out with an air hose. I believe it's just detritus that settles... it isn't growing there.
