    There is no treatment, it’s a fungus that is being fed by the wood. It’s supposed to go away with time. You can get otto’s or algae eating shrimp to help it disappear faster. However, there is no chemical solution. If you keep scrubbing it will continue to come back so let it run it’s course. It’s ugly as hell I feel your pain. I’m just starting to get rid of mine and it’s been a month +

    Thank you for the reply. That would be why I can’t find any then!

    I soaked the wood for over a month, and boiled it, never had it this bad before

    I’ve always used Malaysian wood, never had fungus issues. I tried spiderwood for the first time and fungus galore. Just keep sucking out what you can just don’t scrub, that will expose fresh wood and the process starts all over if that makes sense

    Don’t scrub it!

    Otos will hate you, put a fish bounty on your head. Such are fish grunges, triggered upon remove of their buffet spread.

    Just chill; it’ll go away, soon.
