Like everyone one says,real nice tank,except for the algae on the glass.A mag-float probably won't remove it.You need to get the metal blade scraper to get that off. CUC can't handle that much on glass.Sooner you scape it off it sooner it will stop multiplying on your glass.

True. I was just curious if the issue was immediately identifiable.

Thats some crazy algae though, I wouldn't even know where to start. good luck with it, I hope the phosban reactor will help. Would like to be able to see ALL of your tank..lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I would rethink that.It might still scratch your glass.Better to get the glass scraper make for aquariums.

Used it on my 75g FW all the time... It's not like a Brillo or green pad. Kinda like a bug remover used on cars...

My tank is about 12 years old (just converted to SW) and I only had one small scratch. Of course after cleaning it I forgot about it and ended up putting that side to the front. Can you say "Dumb @$$". I thought you could. LOL
