Looks like common tank fungus. Just remove the fungus covered objects and wipe them off. Nutrients & waste have apparently overwhelmed the system, allowing the fungus population to bloom & feed on the excesses. Be careful not to over feed & keep up with the weekly 50% WC.

ok. I recently been doing 25% waterchanges because I thought the beneficial bacteria have populatade enough to take care of it, but its seems i'm wrong and need to continue the 50% changes.

ok, that's a relief.

Are they new additions? Not to contradict, but a lot of new rubber and plastic equipment will grow this stuff. It either goes away in time or you can wipe it off/suck it out but it is harmless.

I always see it with new stuff in my tanks like suction cups on heaters and thermometers in particular. Personally I like to remove it cause its unsightly, I just use a waste dropper/Turkey baster and leave what that won't pick up.
