Algae Eaters And Driftwood

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, but it's where I keep seeing that driftwood is needed for many of the different types of 'algae eaters' such as bristle/bushynose, rubberlip, etc.

I FINALLY have located an LFS that has some rubberlips in stock, but I don't have driftwood in my tank, only a large piece of Mopani wood.

Knowing that not all things are equal, expecially wood, I just want to verify that this wood will work or do I need to specifically get driftwood? I know Mopani is a hard wood, so maybe it can't serve the same digestive purposes that driftwood, being softer, does?

TIA!

ETA: Ugh. Edit won't let you fix typos in the subject line! It should read Mopani, not MopaniO. (Typos, especially my own, drive me bonkers.)

Lisa- I have 2 plecs and a huge mopani- in fact I think it was you that told me the name of it LOL-

My plecs eat the mopani wood - there are scrapes where they have gnawed it. They also eat algae wafers, cooked vegetable and ........ algae :nana:D
