What's growing on bogwood?
I've got some bogwood in new tank and it's starting to get a light covering of what looks like tiny bits of white cotton wool, what is it? :?

It's probably just a bit of fungus, not a big deal, just boil the driftwood. If it continues to come back, it's probably something like grapewood, which has too many sugars in it to be used in a tank. It will form this fungus no matter how many times you clean it off.
