I have white fluffy feathery stuff growing all over a piece of wood in my tropical fish tank. It is a new set up and there are no fish in it. It has been set up for over 2 weeks but is still ccloudy and does not want to clear. Nitrite is between 0.3 and 0.8.
Any ideas? Here is a photo.

Its normal on a new piece of dw. Its fungus. Did you soak/boil the dw before putting it in your tank? I would suggest removing it & scrubbing it then boil for a few hours while changing the pot of water every 1/2 hr or so.
