Lol. I just moved all this over from a tall tank about a month ago so coraline hasnt had a chance to grow yet. My last tank was coated in it. If it gets too covered this time I think im gonna scrape it off with a razor blade. I really like the nice clean look. Im starting to get some of those little filter feeders on the back wall now.

Is it safe to use a razor on the glass? Won't the glass get scratched?

No, unless you use the edge.

Ive scraped paint off with a razor blade and it worked great. Now it was a brand new blade. Dont use a blade you just have laying around and take ur time. Be very diligent and all will be good. If you scrape it like an ape its obviously gonna scratch your tank. Id practice on a little spot in one of the bottom corners before you move on.

Ok, thanks. I am going to start my aquarium soon and I have a spare painted aquarium that I will use. I will post pics as it progresses. :P
