Still cycling a new 55G tank...
I soaked this wood for about 5 days dumping and re-spraying off a ton.

Is this just some kind of algae, or something else?
Thanks

Honestly I dont know exactly what it is, but it very common w new driftwood and will go away after a couple weeks and doesnt hurt your fish.

You can wipe it if off if you want but it will not hurt hurt anything to leave it there. Its just an eye sore for you.

+1, happens with almost all of my new set ups. Goes away after awhile, I hate it and usually wipe if off during a water change.
