I think I know what that might be after some research and thanks to Kevin. It grew over night and by reading the article he posted it struck me alot like it was the Ich.

"Once mature, they drop off the fish and sink/swim down to the substrate where they encyst and begin to reproduce. In this stage they are called tomonts. After a number of days in which the tomonts divide, the cyst ruptures, releasing the tomites. Tomites may differentiate into theronts, the infective stage, which actively seek a host to reinfect."

So since I was unsure what did I do, remove it from the tank and down the .. well it is no longer around ;). I would rather be safe than sorry.
