    I know new driftwood can get a white fungus growing on it thats harmless, if not ugly. Though I've never see in like this before. Is this normal? 20180619_074144.jpg

    It is biofilm and is normal. Plecos, shrimp, and snails love it. If you don't have fish that will eat it, it will burn itself out and go away on its own.

    Thats what I thought. Ive just never seen it so thick before. Well that puts my mind at ease.

    Have been tempted to move my BN pleco from my community tank to eat it up but the tanks probably a bit too new for him

    Yeah, agreed with above. It's completely normal. If the tank is cycled already, then I'm sure the bristlenose would be fine.

    It will take about a month to go away on its own
