I haven't got any driftwood in the tank.
It grows on the filter, heater, glass, rubbery ornament (but not the resin one oddly enough). It doesn't seem to grow on the gravel though.
The light is on for about 12 hours a day.
It could be algae, but I'm not sure which. I've got brown algae in the tank at the moment, and it doesn't look anything like that.
The slime is a kind of clear greyish green colour.
