I have a 55g NPT setup for 2 days now and noticed this white film on my driftwood pieces that seems to be spreading across the sand floor. What is it? and what do I do to control it? Is this something I should leave be and let it run its course? I added 6 amano shrimp today hoping they may decide to feast on it and they are the only livestock in there ATM.

Looks like the harmless fungus that is seen when you put a new piece of driftwood into the aquarium.

It is harmless, if not aesthetically displeasing to look at.

You can try to remove it manually, but it may come back. It will disappear on its own with time.

Shrimp and fish may pick at it and eat it.
