A lot of wood goes through this process. Ottos will eat it right up. I'ts not harmful just ugly looking. It will usually last a couple weeks and then go away on it's own. 1 way to take some out it use a small tube about double the size of a air line. You can get them at any home depot or lowes. Just suck it off the wood like you were doing a water change.

That's good I took the wood out and I took some of it off and it hasn't come back but I was just simply worried it would kill my fish. Thank you for reassuring me
