    Hey mate, I tend to just use an old, soft rag. Even an old shirt will do as long as it is soft. I use that to get rid of simple algae but for stubborn sections that don't want to come off, I have a toothbrush that I use every now and then. I normally only use that on the decorations :)

    Depends on the algae.
    Diatoms come off easily with a paper towel, occasionally I have green spot algae and use a plastic scraper for that.

    I bought an algae scrubber too but don't really need it.

    I use the edge of a credit card to loosen the stuff off, then wipe clean with a lint free rag. Works great!

    I use an aquarium safe sponge and a razor blade.
