Help What is this ?

I added drift wood and changed my albino plecostamusí food to algae wafers. Can you tell me if these yellow things are coming from the drift wood, my plecostamus, are remnants of the food or something strange I should worry about? Click image for larger version

Hello El...

This looks like a type of fungus. This isn't a problem. The stuff grows where uneaten food falls into cracks in driftwood or crevices in the bottom material of the tank. As long as you're following a sound water change routine, by removing and replacing most of the tank water weekly, there's not a pathogen or parasite that can live in pure water conditions. Fungus isn't generally on the menu for tropical fish. Ramshorn snails, however, will clean this up in a short time.
