I have found a few pieces broken off from one of my pieces driftwood. The main piece of the wood seems pretty hard still. I have no clue what type of wood it is. I bought it at a decent LFS quite a while ago. I would hate to yank it out as it is my bristlenose's favorite hangout. Do I need to worry about these pieces or is it a pre-cursor of my driftwood beginning to rot?

Recently the wonderful piece of driftwood I had in my tank started to get soft and turning the water tea color from the tannic acid. My plecos loved its great hiding spots. I ended up pulling it out but should have done so sooner. My PH dropped and I'm pretty sure that was a major factor. My PH was around 6 before so there wasn't any leaway for a drop.

Pulling it out might be a good idea.
