Fish avoiding new driftwood piece

Anyone else ever had their fish apparently decide that a piece of decor you've added isn't to their liking or is apparently 'evil'?

My danios really don't like the piece of driftwood I added to my tank yesterday. They stay in the corner huddled away from it for no particular reason I've been able to discern. Certainly the molly fry and otos don't seem to pay any particular attention to it or shy away from it.

Maybe its more than its in the middle of what used to be an open space with a few plants and I've destroyed their salomon course?

Its normal for fish to be wary for a little while, they'll get over it
