Battling to get hairy algea off rocks that can't be removed because of mushrooms and zenia and so on stuck to it is a nightmare.I decided to make a tool to wind it up with and then pull it off,so I used a baby bottle cleaner and extended it with a pvc rod.All you do is hold it next to the problem area and wind it up then pull it off.


The brush before use.


The brush after use,cleaning the algea off is quite frustrating but using a toothbrush helps.
This doesn't really bother the fish,only my Foxface feels intimidated but he soon realised it's not a threat to him.
