Anyone with bow front finding it difficult to clean?

Anyone with bow front finding it difficult to clean? Was wondering if the curvature makes it difficult, if not impossible to use a algae scrapper to clean.

I only use it for FW, and it's pretty easy. I've heard not to use it for SW for that reason and for flow reasons.

I don't have a problem, I use a mag float or a razor when I'm cleaning. You can't use the razor up and down but side to side works fine.

I use a stainless steel kent pro scraper on mine, along with the magfloat. Works great.

Wow, I had not heard this at all. I have had a couple and found the flow quite nice.

No flow issues on my 72g, but it's barebottom and runs about 2000gph through it.

I have a 72 gal. BF and find it easy to clean. I just the old fashion method of stucking my arm in the tank and scrubbing with a dish sponge for the front. Seems to work fine.
