I like those pieces of wood! It makes the tank look like the side of a riverbed with tree roots extending into the water.

Very unique scape you got going. It looks great as well as your other tank. Some bolbitis on the tops of the wood would complete the scape. Bolbitis can grow emerced.

It does have a bit of a mangrove root look to it.

Your tank is going to be awesome. The driftwood is very fitting. I love Hui's Destiny. I wish I was you just so I could use the adjective bloody (and not sound dumb) to describe how amazing it is.

The fungus I wouldn't worry about, it'll disappear on its own, and It's harmless.
Good luck on fighting that algae!
And NICE tank!!
