white stuff on driftwood

I have had my driftwood in for a few months and now I see some white fuzz on my driftwood and done parts have a greyish tone to it. I can't get a good picture of it. Should I be worrying?

Hard to say without seeing it. Do you know what type of wood it is? Have you changes anything in the tank or your routine?

I have a pc of grapevine in my tank now that has a white fuzz but it's new and that normally happens with that type of wood when first put in a tank.

You can try taking it out and scrubbing it off in a bucket of tank water. then just watch to see if it comes back after you return it to the tank.

I asked the same when it occurred in my tank. A lot of responses were that it was natural and will go away with time or a scrubbing.
