24 hour dunk on a bulk substrate is too long.  I am surprised it didnt disintegrate.  I would go with a 4-6 hour dunk

It looks like mycelium.

Your first pic looks like your substrate is covered in aborts and small fruits.

I had a particular clone hat ALWAYS did this, but it was considerable "worse" than yours with a crazy amount of mycelium on each cap. It would often be very rhizomorphic and bizarre looking. The fruits were finet o eat though with no problems.

That definitely looks like trich. That sub is done. Get rid of it before it makes much more of a mess.
