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?
