manzanita wood fuzzy?!?

this is from a friends tank i have been helping get into plants.

i've heard that manzanita can get a fungus on it, but it would go away on it own. this has been on his manzanita for 3-4 weeks, he even scrubbed it off a week ago and its back.

is this the hite stuff i've heard about? i also heard it went away on its own...

how long does it take to go away?

if not, what is it and how can we remedy this situation?

thanks for any help guys!







i was thinking taking the wood out and pouring hydrogen peroxide on it might work. any ideas?

I'd just wait it out. It's eating up whatever it wants on the outside. My branch did it for six weeks or so and hasn't done it since. The fungus doesn't hurt anything.
