    First, Hello and welcome to AC.

    Are these rocks that you purchased or rocks you picked up somewhere from outside like a creek?

    You can boil your rocks to sterilize them and kill anything that might be living on them like things we cant see.

    +1 to crunchy. Its harmless to the fish, dont worry. If you have mollies or gouramis or a pleco, they might eat it for ya. Otherwise just keep scrubbing it off and eventually it stops growing. :) My female dwarf gourami loved it when i had it on my wood. Got herself fat off it.

    +1 to ek,

    My old dwarf gourami loved picking at my driftwood fungus then along came a pleco and almost overnight the fungus was gone.

    It is harmless but pretty unsightly. I would advise on scrubbing and boiling the rocks incase it is something other than the fungus, seeing as it has appeared on rocks instead of wood
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .
