Otos and wood


So I have this weird white fungus-like growth on my Manzanita wood. Though I already had this wood inside a tank for months, I just transferred it to another tank, and now there is this white fungus-like growth on it.

I read that Otos eat it, is that true?

It looks like a clear gel or something.. Its not a massive amount, but it covers a thin layer on the entire piece of wood.

Its on all 3 pieces that I transferred.

Would this go away? Or should I get an oto to solve the problem?

Thanks for the help.

My otos never touched it. I sucked it out with a baster. After a few times, it went away.

For more information, go to Search/Tag Search. Or you can just click the tags I put on your post to see other posts with the same tags.
