    Saw them at Northlands, was thinking of getting, not to sure if it is a gimmick.

    Why would you say it is a gimmick?

    The cleaner it's self works, and I know that a razor blade works, but the two together?

    I have one - it's great, it gets rid of anything on the glass - even stubborn coraline. just be careful to keep the blade straight.

    I think Aqua Medic make one...so Northlands would be a good bet. Saw them there about a month or two ago...quite expensive but a nice upgrade rom a stanley blade in a paint scraper

    It is the purple stuff that grows on your rock, a calcareous algae - harmless on your rockwork but not so nice on the glass

    There's a couple floating around on ebay and other international sites etc. Just trying my luck locally first.

    I am tired of the scraper I have, It's easier pushing a 20 ton truck around the block than it is to use a scraper on my tank.

    The new Aqua Medic ones are just awesome, takes a bit more elbow grease to move them and you really dont want them to stick together as its a mission to separate them but really nice to clean the inside glass.
