Manzanita wood slime?

Hey,

I just put these pieces of manzanita in my tank and theyíve grown a pretty thick layer of slime on them. I only have a couple guppies in the tank right now, so Iím not really worried about any fish, but Iím curious what the slime is and if I should take them out and toss boiling water on them a few times.

Looks like the typical fungus that initially grows on new driftwood. It's temporary & harmless.
