Question what is this?

I'm currently treating my crowntail for fin rot, so there are oak leaves in his tank. Yesterday I was looking at the leaf in his tank and I noticed that there were fuzzy white stuffs on the back of the leaf, so I did a full water change and added a new leaf in. i just checked again and the white fuzzy things were back. I'm sure it's safe because i've been using leaves for a while, but i'm just wondering if any of you'll know what this is?

I had the same problem with almond leaves- I don't use them anymore because I am quite sure it was that white stuff that killed my bettas.

It's possible that some of the leaves were good and some were bad- my almond leaves were like that. It sounds like mold to me.

I thought so too! My pet-co's workers said save live plants for when you get used to the fish!

No, unfortunately I don't... but if it was white and fuzzy I'm quite sure it's mold.
