I put my driftwood in an ice chest and filled it with boiling water. The piece I found was a lot thicker, so I boiled it repeatedly over about a month. It got rid of any yucky stuff and all the tannins.

If at least half of it will fit in a pot you can always turn the driftwood every half hour or so. That's what I did with mine and I never got any fungus.

So if I just let it run it's course it'll probably go away? Asking because I only have a school of ember tetras in there right now and they won't go near it.
