I do 3 sides of my 55 with a Mag-Float magnetic joby, takes less than 2 minutes as I do it 2 or 3 times a week. I think this keeps any algaes from even getting a foot hold (perhaps even coraline?) so I do it wether or not I see algae on the glass.

How is this possible? My magnet does not clean off my algae. I have an acrylic tank. What kind of magnet will work without scratching? Also, how do you 5 minute people clean the gunk right above your substrate? I use a toothbrush and it takes forever. Maybe this is wht my clown fish is biting me, he is sick of me being in the tank for an hour.

Thanks to Darin at captivereefs.com I am ordering a pirahna float magnet so I can be like you 10 minute a week people. Darin has been very helpful, I highly recommend him. I will let you know how it cuts down on my weekly routine.
