I just noticed today that I have tons of what looks like little hairs on my driftwood. I am wondering what these could be? Could it be a fungis growing or simply just algea? Any ideas?

I have seen it before. It will not harm your fish. I forgot exactly what its called, but Im pretty sure that if is harmless.

Have you recently added the wood? If so, i would add salt and anti-bacterial chemicals in there because you never know whats logged in the wood before you added it in your tank. If the wood has been your tank for a while, i dont see whats wrng with it. Add a pleco and they will do the job.

I have some also on my java ferns. That are on the driftwood. I just rub it off at cleaning time.

Either one most likely algae, do you have plants in your tank as well?

All my plants in the tank are plastic. And yes I added the wood like a month ago, but I did treat it twice using Nates directions.
