 Hi,
 
 I  recently  have  setup  a  CRS  (Crystal  Red  Shrimp)  tank  with  driftwood  and  moss.  
 After  4  days  of  putting  in  the  driftwood,  noticed  a  white  slime/fungi  film  forming  on  the  driftwood  (  few  portions  where  moss  isn't  tied).
 The  driftwood  seemed  to  be  treated  and  has  leached  no  tannins  at  all  till  now.
 
 Read  on  internet,  the  cure  is  to  boil  the  wood  and  fungi  will  go  away.  But  at  the  same  time  read  they  aren't  harmful  at  all  and  go  away  with  time.
 Just  wanted  to  ask,  will  it  be  a  problem  with  the  CRS?
 
 Should  i  bother  to  remove  it  by  boiling  or  let  it  go  away  on  its  own?
 
 Thanks  &  Regards,
 Saurav

 Thanks  Madan  Sir  for  the  reply.
 So  i  assume  wiping/scrubbing  the  driftwood  will  be  good  enough  and  is  nothing  to  worry  about.

 Better  untie  the  moss  n  keep  it  separately   it  happened  to  me  n  all  my  pellia  moss  died  as  the  result  .  
 The  shrimps  love  to  eat  it  also  if  u  can  get  apple  bridgesi  snail  (one  who  doesn't  eat  plants)  he'll  eat  all  the  fungus.  
 One  of  the  most  efficient  ways  to  treat  driftwood  is  to  boil  it  with  coarse  salt  (not  table  salt)  for  4  hrs  cool  it  n  keep
 the  wood  for  8  days  in  a  bucket  of  water.

 Hi  Rony,
 
 So  you  mean  to  say  that  CRS  will  eat  away  the  fungus?  if  its  the  case,  then  i'll  let  it  be  and  wont  treat  the  driftwood.
 i'll  just  untie  the  moss  because,  I'm  not  sure  of  the  availability  of  coarse  salt  and  the  apple  snail  variant  you  mentioned  here.
 Will  keep  wiping  the  fungus  as  Madan  Sir  suggested  to  keep  it  in  check.
 
 Regards,
 Saurav

 Yes  saurav  they  eat  the  fungus  but  if  its  a  lot  of  fungus  better  get  the  drift  wood  out  boil  it  in  sea  salt  because  its  not  gonna  disappear  very  soon  (atleast  not  a  month  from  now)   Sad  
 
 I  meant  this  snail  its  not  the  regular  apple  snail  they  look  alike  but  this  one  doesn't  eat  plants
