Myy driftwood where i recently tied som moss to it is leaking some kind of sap/puffy material that sticks to it. Is it normal in your aquarium guys? Also the seller said it is normal.. but i just wanna make sure.. and what can i do to get rid of it?

I keep getting algae coating my driftwood like crazy.

My plants weren't growing so well, so I took the driftwood out to give them more room to grow in my tank.

I currently have the driftwood, drying.

mine did that too..every water change i would rinse the driftwood off in aquarium water and it eventually stopped producing that white translucent "slime"
I would do that, but the problem is that the wood already have moss tied to it, but i tried just sucking the slime with some pipe and it does get rid of it but not all, if i leave it like that will it just dissolve or can the shrimps eat it??

im pretty sure it will eventually go away...just keep using ur gravel vac 2 suck some off each water change..it is unsightly but is not a danger 2 ur inhabitants.
