Some like it ALOT and other not so much. I'd like some!

Scraping it won get rid of it it's just gonna float around your tank and spread... I believe.

I got a piece of rock from a friend, turned my pumps off and scraped away to try and seed my tank so it will grow. Now I have some on the back of my BC29 and on the rocks. Not much but it's getting there.
