Hello everyone!

Let me start by saying, I am a total newb. I don't understand a lot of things about planted aquariums yet, but I am doing my very best.

Now that that's out of the way, I need help identifying this crap in my 10 gallon aquarium. When I first noticed it, I thought it was poly-fill fibers coming out of my filter, so I took that out immediately, plucked out as much as I could, did a 50% water change, and thought it would eventually just go away. Nope. It just keeps growing and growing and I don't know what it is or how to stop it. :(

I really want to figure this out before I try putting fish in.

Here's the album for pictures:

Here's my setup:
10 gallon
AquaClear 30 filter
ADA Aquasoil
Nicrew BrightLED light
CO2 injection with diffuser (1.5ish bps, drop checker staying green throughout the injection period)
Plants: Java fern, ludwigia repens, dwarf lily, christmas moss, pygmy chain sword, and dwarf baby tears
Animals: 3 black devil snails, 2 mystery snails, and 1 nerite snail
