    is the dust on the wood or in the water column?

    wood that I have left dry outside of my tank for long periods of time has also got a look of white 'dusty' patches. usually on my big hunks of malaysian. I think this is the same thing you are referring to. it goes away once the wood has aged in the aquarium. give it a few months. harmless IME.

    if the dust is actual particles in the water column I would recommend more mech filtration.

    if it's a soft wood, plecos will usually gnaw off plenty of sawdust and you'd definitely notice.
