What is this film around the driftwood?

It is kind of slimy. I can get it out with a tweezer or something. I didn't boil the driftwood before putting it in.

It's harmless fungus, rather common on new wood. Some fish eats it or you can wipe it off. Will disappear by itself within a month.

Same As @OVT said, newer pieces of wood leak sugars as they mature , nothing to be worried about.

Awesome, thanks guys! I haven't put anything in there yet because I was afraid I might need to remove it.
