Fungus in filter! Help!

I just cleaned out my filter, and to my surprise, I discovered some sort of white fungus growing on my bio-wheel, filter floss, and on some of the plastic parts of the filter. I replaced the filter floss, and I'm going to clean it off of the actual filter, but what should I do about the bio-wheel? I don't want to lose that much of my bio-filtration if possible. Is there some sort of miracle cure for this?

Thanks,
SombreroBanana

Rinse it off in tank water.

That'll get rid of the fungus? I find that hard to believe.
