Not sure if it is worth putting it back in or changing to some rocks.
The brown tint is most likely tannins from the wood. Mopani I have found to have a lot of tannins. These are not harmful.
That is a nice chunk of wood, it is worth trying it. The fungus may be non-toxic, unfortunately there is no way to test this except in a tank with fish.
