What's the slimy white stuff in my fish tank?

It honestly looks like ***. It's around my tank, it was all in the filter, my poor shrimp has some stuck to him. It's gross. My tank was beautiful yesterday and now it looks horrible.

There's also little white particles all over, they move with the filter on and look I swear like what picture of semen look like, bulbed in the front and stringy in the back. They do not move when the filter is off. Someone help please.

    Looks like white algae.  Changing the water should help.  You may need to change the filter too.

What is the cleaning and feeding schedual?
