    You have the case of Bryazoa, they only live in the dark because they usually get overwhelmed by algae growth hence they stick to dark areas. And they aren't plants they are actually living animals you have to stick them under a magnifying glass in some clean water then you will see what they really are because they are tiny about 0.5 millimeters big. They are pretty harmless you can find more info on them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bryozoa
