Weird fungus growing

Davidh9054

Hi like the title says I have a weird fungus growing in my tank on my driftwood. It doesn’t look like the fungus/film that other people say they have on newer driftwood. The wood has been in the tank for a little over a month now. Should I just leave it or clean it off. My water has been cloudy this week. I checked the water parameters and my ph was about 6.6, ammonia .25-.5 and nitrates about 20. I did a 50% water change and after the water change is when I noticed the fungus.

i left it on to see what happens and just gonna check the water parameters each day. I just wasn’t sure if that’s what was causing the cloudiness in the water. After my water change yesterday my water still looks a bit cloudy today.

It may be what is causing it. I believe water changes will clear it up.
