    It looks like a sponge to me....
    If it can be removed, remove it before it takes over.

    It looks like the shroom is dying and snotting over.

    Have you poked this thing at all? I'm suspecting a predatory sea slug... but could be a sponge or something else... I can't tell much from the photo.
