The fungus that appeared on my piece of Mopani wood was poisonous to fish. They did not eat it; the water turned slightly cloudy and it affected their respiration. I've no idea how. But after scrubbing it thoroughly, and leaving it for about 2+ months in a tank of water (no fish), I saw no further fungus so I decided to put it back. It seems OK now, after maybe 4 months, with fish in the tank.
