Anyone familiar with Mapani Wood?

Hi, I purchased 2 pieces of Mapani Wood to use in my freshwater tank and have followed the directions to soak thoroughly changing the water over and over until the water remains clear. I placed the "driftwood" in my 55 gal tank and after a day, noticed that a scum/slime had formed on it. Took it back out of the tank and washed it off and started soaking it again with frequent water changes. Yesterday I put the "driftwood" back in my tank and now it has the film again and in some portions contains little bubbles. Is this something I need to worry about? Has anyone else had this experience? Thanks so much!!

Welcome to the forum!

I see that you've made another thread about this topic in the freshwater fish section. That thread is located here:
Slime on Mopani Wood

I'll answer your question there (and will encourage anyone else who might read this thread to do the same) so that you have all of your answers in one place rather than divided between the two threads.
