That is debatable...... Lol you need to get a razor to scrape it off which is a pain.

If the tank is empty muratic acid will remove coraline fast. if it is stocked a razor blade for the glass and a urchin for the rocks.

I have scratched glass with both...... Don't let them get bent and use the thin square razor blades not the thick angle ones.

honestly I have only scratched the glass when i was in a hurry and bent the blade. Having a clownfish attacking your hand while scraping tends to startle you. stay away from the silicone. And i do not know of anyway to prevent growth. besides maybe using a floating algea magnet cleaner.The paper towel confuses me/ we are talking about the inside of the aquarium correct?
