oooo i had that gooo on my wood that i had in a tank sometime ago,
i took it out and bleach wipped it and after washing in tap water,tank safe
and left it in the hot sun..it seemed to have killed it..howerver
yours is on the side of the tanků.scoop it out ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Your tank is looking great. I'd just try to remove as much of the goo as I could during water changes. It should gradually go away.

ok people update!! i have the majority of the goopy stuff gone and ive been brushing the wood with a tooth brush so nothing will stick to it. my water is almost crystal clear then i will finish planting and take pictures yayy! now i need opinions, i saw some guy talking about super gluing java moss to stuff in the tank and the glue wont hurt the water??? idk what to think about all that so how else would i secure the moss to substrate or would the super glue on craft mesh or something work?
