I have 1 them magnets for cleaning it but it doesn't really work, any other ways?
Filter floss i use, or if the algae is tuff a coarse filter sponge.
Algae Scrubber that one was for acrylic but they make it for glass too
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
I use a scotch brite pad and toothbrush for glass not sure for acrylic
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.
