Got the same thing and it has spread to my substrate and plants. If I pull it out it takes the substrate with it. Because mine is a shrimp tank, I have just let it go and will eventually do a complete tear down and bleach the wood and substrate and rocks and get rid of all the plants and moss in this tank. It seems to move with the plants to other tanks.

Look at the shrimp tanks on the bottom of this link and you will see the same thing even though I don't know exactly what type of algae it is.
