My cory tank has one piece of drift wood that i purchased and now has this clear white fuzz growing on it WHAT IS IT? Also it has alittle one on the gravel right at the base of the wood and is black I would assume from the gravel. Does anyone know anything about this stuff and how to get rid of it:jaw:

One of a million different possible fungal spores. Just take it out and give it a good scrup with a stiff brush (no soap, etc.). ALso, I'd suspect your water quality is a little off too.

that is a very common occurrance with new driftwood. It is either a fungus or a bacteria. Should be harmless, though very unsightly. Remove it mechanically as suggested, and eventually it should die back.
Checking your water params is always a good idea I agree.
