Six days ago, I set up a 10 gallon Walstad tank. I have one large piece of driftwood, together with another, smaller, piece.
I noticed some white, fuzzy stuff growing on them (moreso on the large piece though). Moreover, some of the fuzz is starting to turn brown (this I noticed today). In addition, the water is slightly cloudy.
My current plant stock is:
Rotala Indica green
Cryptocorine wendtii Green
Cryptocorine wendtii Brown
Christmas moss on rocks
I realized after the fact that I may need to plant more heavily? In particular, I have no super fast growing plants. I have not yet added floaters (have frogbit in another tank, which is doing great, *knocks on wood*), since I figured the extra light might be beneficial for the dwarf hairgrass to become established. This might be a baseless belief though.
The light I'm running is a Beamswork EA Full Spectrum LED, lights are on 7:00 am - 12:00 pm and 4:00pm - 9:00 pm with a siesta period in between.
There's a small water pump to aid in water movement.

From some reports I've read online, the white fuzz is normal (some type of fungus?) and should go away on its own. Still, I'm not sure if I should be doing any water changes or other kinds of maintenance.
Thanks a lot!
