I have this reoccurring issue on one piece of manzanita driftwood. It is right near the waterline, never goes under but stays in the damp area of the wood. I can't seem to get rid of it. I've boiled the wood, bleached it as well but it keeps coming back after several days. Attached a picture, any clues how to get rid of it?

It takes a couple months for driftwood to fully establish in water, till then, the wood will continue to grow types of fungus. Just wipe it off whenever it pops up and it will stop all together after a month or 2.

Thanks for replying, this tank is roughly 8 months old and this has started to appear on the driftwood about 2-3 months ago. I have been wiping it off, tried hydrogen peroxide several times. Then resorted to boiling it and then bleaching it about a week ago, and this little bigger popped up about 2 days ago. It gets roughly the size of 1.5sq inches in 5-6 days time. I do about 20% water change every 3 days with RODI water and drop one squirt of fert (thrive) once a week, if that helps on a 70g tank. Tank is pretty clear, with very minimal algae.
