Wood Canopy Dripping


I'm new and want to see if y'all would be able to help me a small, vexing issue. My tank has a wooden canopy. Every once in a while the wooden canopy starts to drip. This has started since I got a better air pump for my bubbler. It's on the weakest setting but every once in a while the wooden seems to get damp on the end where the bubbles appear and drips.

Is there any way to stop that short of turning off the pump complètement? Is there anything to apply to the wood or a way to reduce the dripping? Should I turn off the pump at night perhaps?

Help would very much be appreciated!

You could put a piece of glass, or even plexiglass over the area where the bubbles exit the tank. That should keep the spray from the airstone from hitting the canopy.
