I recently took the nerites out of my high tech tank because the ph was getting a little low, so I decided to try and clean up the one piece of driftwood in the tank. I'm not sure what type it is, but it's nice and hard. After trying to scrub it off without success, I realized the only way it was going to come off was scraping it with something sharp and metallic. I let it dry out for a couple days then resoaked it for an hour, so that just the outermost layer was soaked. This was to hopefully prevent me from gouging it too deeply. Then I went to work with a sharp steak knife. It took a couple hours of work and I had to stop twice to resoak, but eventually I got it done and I'm fairly pleased with the results. I took off some wood, but not enough that you would really see it after it waterlogs again. I would not consider this worthwhile if the snails were still in the tank.
