White stuff?

568 3
So I was away for a couple of days and when I came back my apisto had died. All other inhabitants in this 12 gallon tank were fine. So what I did was that I took him out, I did a water change, normal maintenance - cleaning the gravel/substrate and so on. I also used my test kits for NO2 and NO3 - both showed 0ppm. Now approximately two days after I found this white fungi looking stuff on the substrate/on some driftwood.. look at the picture attached. Does anyone know what this is? How should I get rid of it (will my shrimp and snails take care of it?)? Is it dangerous for the fish?

It is not contagious at all. I had it in my tank as well. If it bothers you just scrub it off with a tooth brush. It eventually disappears. It is bacterial growth and my guppy love to eat it. :p

How long has the driftwood been in there?

It *could* be normal driftwood bacteria.
