What specifically are you using for aquarium soil? How wide spread is the fungus and do you have any pictures you can share?

Some more information would be helpful. Kind of soil. Is it submerged. Photos would be ideal.

I have never seen a white fungus except in cases where people have done dry starts. Usually flooding the tank will resolve the problem in that case.
