I don't think an anti fungal treatment will be effective as the mycelia will be deep within the wood. The problem is the damp, shady, moist conditions that are oh so necessary for the paludarium environment. The spores are also all over the system now.
You can try drying the system out slightly (or thin out some areas to provide better air circulation where the caps seem to be more prevalent) but some plants may sulk with drier conditions, so, personally, I would just remove the caps as you see them, definitely before they mature and spread spores.
At some point, the mycelia will get exhausted trying to propagate and slow right down as their substrate ie the wood is exhausted of required nutrients. You may still get caps now and again, but it should be controllable.
