That is what it looks like. If your really aggravated by it, you can pull it out and scrub it with a toothbrush to get most of it off but it will return if you don't add phosphorus. It's a sign of PO4 deficiency. Careful though, too much phosphorus dosing will feed green hair algae among others. Good luck.
