Coralline Algae on front glass

What do you use to remove coralline algae off your front glass? I tried using a sponge scrapper but the algae is just too hard.

Razor blades I've found work best but you must take caution to not scratch. Some people use old credit cards but that doesn't work for mine its just to hard lol.

Razors work well for glass tanks, credit cards for acrylic tanks.
