I seen something similar about a year ago, I originally thought it was a plastic shopping bag being dissolved by Bacteria, I flicked it with my fingers but only to see it smash to pieces with black dust inside.
I came across it again not just a single specimen but probably ½ dozen of them. It appears to be some type of ‘Sponge Bacterial Disease’, although I’ve only seen it associate itself with one species it’s a possibility it may spread too more. This silver colour Bacteria completely covers the sponge eventually turning the sponge into Black dust resembling ash from a fire place, then dislodges the sponge & gets carried by the currents to spread.
I took a sample & took some photographs of the chain bacteria through the microscope using a 100x oil objective with 10x eye piece (1000x Optical Magnification + cropping + Enlarging) & stacked the images from a short video with 600 frames.
