    Sorry being a bit lazy, not searching though the old threads. What is the best glass cleaner/scraper, for coralline locally available.

    And I have heard of the credit card and stanley blade ideas :)

    There are hobby magnets with a blade attached, or long handled scrapers on the market, just remember to remove the blages and rinse them, the salt water is a real killer.

    I like that magnet blade scraper idea, can we get this locally members ?

    I keep seeing the same old Boyu floating magnetic cleaner which is barely good enough for algae let a lone coralline.

    Tunze make some pretty strong ones but serious $$$... (I know LikesFish had one for sale)

    Otherwise Aquamedic make a good one that has the blade attachment. For huge areas of glass the aquamedic scraper has blades about 15cm wide...
