Handy hair/thread algae tool

I have a small amount algae in my tank. It's very hard to see, so I go hunting for it with a brush. I found this little brush which I think came with a electric razer for cleaning it. Anyways, I stuck the wire end in to a small plastic tube and came up with this. It works better for me than a tooth brush.

I know you can get these brushes at a music store also. They are often used to clean musical instruments. Great idea!
