DSM Mold


So I started a DSM 10g with wood, rocks, play sand, & DHG. Upon misting, I'm noticing some dusty mold on the wood. Is this dangerous? Should I not be inhaling nearby? Was I supposed to soak the wood first? Here is my setup:

Just wondering of this mold is something I need to remove immediately. I mist everyday.

Some driftwood will grow fuzzy mold, the general consensus seams to be that it is safe. My fish devoured the stuff on a stick I got from my back yard. As far as getting it in the DSM I am not sure if it is the same stuff or not.
