That could just be "fuzz" from sugars in the wood leeching out. Is that new wood?

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.

yes, its new wood, procured locally from LFS, I have treated with boiling water and cured for 2 weeks before I set up the tank. I tried vacuuming this during the water change and I was able to get some matter off the wood.
