I have had that on my driftwood too, and it eventually went away. You could probably just scrub it off occasionally until it goes away! I don't think it's harmful

its a bacteria from what ive read, almost like an algae? shrimp or snails would eat it but its not harmful.... just ugly (i have a clump of this in my tank now too, its gross so i try and suck it off the wood when i do water changes)

Thanks! I have been cleaning them when I do my water changes when they get too nasty looking.
