Default White fuzzy fungus in Terrarium

I have had my terrarium together for about 4 days. It turned out cool, Ihave two basic plants, moss and lots of drift wood. This morning we found white fuzzy fungus growing in the terriarum. As we plan to evenutally put a frog in, I want to know what to do to stop this or if it is dangerous for the frog(s). Thanks from a newbee!

Welcome to the forums. The mold will subside in time. Length of time depends on what type of wood you've used. Grapewood takes the longest and can retain mold for quite some time. It should not be harmful to the frogs.

No problem. Many people have this happening in their terrariums. Here's a link that comes up in the search feature:

I had the same deal for about a week, it went away just finely with no effects to my frogs.

Actually a bonus if you put springtails in, they eat that stuff so it's springtail food
