Not substrate, but question about driftwood...

Has anyone used natural cypress knees for tank decoration? I have one that I put in a few days ago & it has a gel like substance on it in a couple areas. Doesn't look like eggs of any sort though. No fish in the tank yet & wonder if it will cause problems to the fish.

It's likely a fungus of some sort. I'd take it out, soak in in 20:1 bleach for a couple minutes, and let it soak in declorinated water for the rest of the night or until there's no more bleach smell.
