White hair on driftwood...what will get rid of it?
I've had a piece of driftwood in my tank for about a month and a half. It's covered in a white, hairy substance (some areas just have short bristles, but others have long clumps).
I bought a wide-mouth pleco a couple of weeks ago thinking that it might take care of it, but the pleco seems completely disinterested in that piece of wood.
Does anyone know what this is? I've read other posts that suggest it's not algae and that it is not harmful, but I'm still not sure what it actually is and how to get rid of it (even if it's not harmful it is still unsightly).
Also, I just saw two snails in the algae, and I'm pretty sure they were bumping uglies. That doesn't really have anything to do with the problem, I just thought it was weird.
Thanks for the help!
