Never show anyone your true potential. If you do, they will always expect it.

It could be bacterial bloom from the driftwood. Should go away on its own.

That's my guess.

Edit:

Your tank is cycled? What are the water parameters? Nitirite nitrate ammonia

Definitely a bacterial bloom on you wood. It almost always happens on redmoor/ azalea root or similar.

It will go away on its own in a few weeks and is not harmful for the fish. If you don’t like the look of it, I normally use a toothbrush every so often to remove new growth.

what is the reason for it? is it came from the Seachem Stability?

No, it's naturally occurring on the wood. The wood picked up fungal or bacterial spores in the wild before being collected. Boiling and bleaching your wood before introduction to the tank can minimize or eliminate the problem, but other than being unsightly, it's harmless.
