How to remove Coraline on glass

What's the best way to remove coraline that is growing on the display portion of the tank glass?

I thought about using a straight edge razor??

We use the edge of a credit card. About all the darn things are good for.

If you don't want to get your hands wet, Kent makes a scraper that comes in different lengths and with that can hold either a plastic or metal scraper. The plastic is okay and good for acrylic, but the metal scraper works great for coralline.

Yup, I use the Kent scraper because my tank is so deep. I still get my darn arm wet even using the scraper...

I use razor blades. Just be careful not to put to much pressure on the glass in one spot and your fine!
