Best glass scraper?


I'm seeing little round whitish spots along the lower part of the tank glass that don't come off with a Mag Float. I guess this is CA?

In any event, what's the best scraper for this. My tank is glass BTW.

I've had really good luck with a Kent Proscrapper in that 2 to three inch section from the substrate up. The place you dont want to use a magfloat just incase it picks up sand or something like that and you scratch the glass before you know its in there. It also has a steel blade upgrade from the plastic one that it comes with if you really need to put the power to it.
