    Ok, I just got my 75 gallon tank and driftwood about a month ago. I filled it 3-4 weeks ago and let the driftwood soak for 2 weeks in a trash can. The problem was I would come home every day and the water would only be half full. And every time I agree filled it up,I would see dead mosquitoes floating to the top. I just got back from vacation and I noticed that there is a living organism and a bunch of weird stuff growing on top of my Driftwood. What could it be? And how can I get rid of it? I was planning to add in fish this weekend but Idk what to do.

    I boil my driftwood before putting it in the tank. That should kill anything you don't want.
