Rep: tdavidr1 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Driftwood Fungus

Hello. Recently I put a piece of ZooMed Mopani Wood in my Axolotls tank. My problem is that it has a ton of white, slimy fungus growing on it. This in its self is not a problem, as the fungus is not harmful. The problem is that this fungus is clogging up my filter. It has drastically reduced the flow of my filter. Any recommendations to deal with this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Clean the filter and repeat! The fungus on wood is nothing harmful like you said and your filter getting clogged is a good thing, since that's what it's for.

I would imagine that boiling the wood would kill all the fungus, if you wanted to be rid of it completely.
