If there is white slime on the wood, yes it is completely normal. I'm not 100% sure what it is but it happens with almost all new wood that was not pre-soaked. It's not strictly mould as mould cannot survive underwater. It will pass. Shrimp and snails both like to eat it, in the meantime.

Hi

sorry should have stated it’s the white film on both the right root and middle joint. Will adding shrimp in at some point in the future once the tank has matured a bit. cheers
