Identification some type of algae I think

I saw this in my tank today:


It wasn't there yesterday just appeared, looks like a tangled wad of dog hair and is kind of dull golden brown colored, like wet dog hair from a retreiver or something lol. I think I may have seen small strands of it blowing from one of my powerheads, but never a wad like that. I don't have any dogs so it's something from the tank lol. Anyone know what it is?


I see whatchu did there.
Are we talking about the hair ball? Could it be filter floss? Or a fuzz ball from outside of the tank? Just take it out...
