What is it?

affraid

That is a toothpick so you can see the size - any wisdom? Anything to be afraid of?

looks like some type of fungi...maybe there is still some decomposting material in you mix...and high moisture.

I have tons of that, a bit larger and a bit more brown
I have just figured it is a mushroom

I would doubt it was a bad thing, I have not noticed it doing anything wrong

First of all, Welcome! Very Happy

This looks really similar to a fungus I had in a few of my seedling pots a month or so ago. I THINK it was geosiphon, based on pics I found online, but I was not able to find information on it that related to gardening. I posted a question about it on the forum but no one responded. I hope you have better luck on finding out about it than I did - but, from what I did gather in my research, most mushrooms are not a threat. AND if it's any consolation, I stopped overwatering my seedlings (so easy to do when you're excited to get them going!) and the mystery fungus dissappeared, and my plants did not seem any worse for the wear!
