Sorry to answer your question with a question, but it needs to be asked. Have you seen further signs of fungus in the main tank? Any signs of it in the 10 gallon where you moved the plants and scooped out substrate to?

In quick answer to can you clean it... no. If it is contaminated with something that causes fungus in your tank then I would replace it if you need more. By adding it back to the main tank you risk bringing the fungal problem back with it.

I have not seen any signs in either tank of the fungus. As far as the substrate in question it is sitting g in a bucket of water was kinda afraid of using it any where lol so with your answer which I thought might be the case and no big deal to me I will throw the stuff away and buy another bag to replenish what I need. Thanks

Yep, those are eggs.

Those whitish areas- are they stuck on things or dies it disperse with water movement?

I got similiar white areas when I use homemade root tabs.

I am assuming Redchigh you are talking about the fungus on the gravel, it didn't seem to be stuck on anything and it would seem to disperse with water movement but not totally if that makes sense. If a fish swam though it the "cloud" would move and clear up for a second but when the water movement stopped it would just come right back.
