White Spots on Driftwood
I noticed that there are white spots on my driftwood. What might it be, is it a bad thing? Should I toss out the wood and replace it?

It could be a type of fungis maybe ? A picture would help to confirm that
I most cases you can scrub off stuff like that from driftwood using only very hot tap water and allowing the driftwood to dry out before returning it to your tankIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Could also be snail eggs.When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Do you have nerite snails? They leave single white eggs all over the place. It won't harm your tank, and they do disappear after a while.

Here are some pictures. It seems like the spots are kind of hard and I am able to scrape some of it off. I only have guppies in this particular tank, so there's no possibility of eggs. And I have no snails and I've had this piece of driftwood for about a month.
