    Hey all!

    My tank has been set up since february with n ofish, and i was just wondering how i get rid of spot algae? I have my magnet cleaner thing, but it doesn't budge!! :;b
    (I'm just assuming its spot algae here is a picture i found on the internet:

    But it looks more rounded, and spaced out, and it grows in small rings, and then grows in towards the centre to fill in the circle.

    **Its also darker than that image - i forgot to add sorry!

    I merged your two posts. Don't forget there is an edit key that you can use at the bottom of every post for add on thoughts or corrections.
    Thanks!
    Ken

    Okay - just tried the scaper. Didn't work in the slightest. But my fingernail did, its slower and not so hygenic for me, but it works :)
