    algae scrapers?

    Which algae scrapers do you guys use? I've got brown algae and use a toothbrush on the rocks, but what should I use on the acrylic? cotton cloth(old tee-shirt, micro fiber) of a commercial algae scraper/pad? I don't want to scratch the inside of the tank. Tank is a Clear for Life acrylic

    I use the stainless steel algae scrapers sold on amazon . Just search Stainless Steel Algae Scraper and it comes up. Its basically an imitation of the ADA line of scrapers. I like these scrapers better than the Kent and other brands because their edge margin is better aligned with the thin silicon seams on my ADA tanks. I can just jam it down the corner and it will just follow the seam and not damage the silicone.
