some kinda slime???

Hi guys - This past week or so I've noticed that something in my tank has been oozing out thin (thread-like) filaments of brown slime. They're sticking onto some of the other corals (SPS'S) and I don't think they appreciate it! Over the past few weeks I've added 3 new corals....and a pair of anthisas....I didn't have this problem before that, but it doesn't seem like the new one's are the culprit. I cant tell for sure who's emitting the slime - it looks most likely that it's comming from an old (finger?) leather that's off in the corner - an old piece from my old tank. Does that sound likely?
Not sure what to do....all my water parameters test out fine.
My tank is a 100 gl, with several SPS, a few LPS and some zoo's and of course, that old leather.
Any advice would be sincerely appreciated!! - Lee

Sounds like maybe a worm/snail. I have a worm that has a hard shell and spews slimy stuff too.
