Please ID

Hello all, can you please help me ID this that has appeared in my tank. I've kept tropical tank for a number of years but never seen this before. It creeps round the tank in a weblike structure before dropping off on the substrate where I just pick it out. I have a planted tank with co2 injection. Weekly water changes.

I couldn't say specifically which one, but it's a type of fungus.

Doctor google confirms its a fungus. Common reasons are poor water quality or something in the tank is dead (plant matter or fish),. From your pics, your water looks ok. Maybe poke around and see if you lost a fish?

Yes it was a fish. Found right behind one of the rocks.

I would do a huge WC after finding something dead, around 70-80% then maybe a 40-50% the next day just to be safe.
