A slimy-white film has developed on the root/cork bark in my aquarium after a few days. What is it and how can I get rid of it?

The white film can generally be attributed to slime moulds which are harmless and disappear on their own after approx. 14 days. They are also welcomed as a food supplement by animals which feed on periphytons.

No further action is necessary.
