I just bought a Magfloat 5 days ago. Best 13 dollars I ever spent. Made my life easier and my tank view much more enjoyable.

You can also get an attachment for the mag float that holds a razor for the coraline growth.

Here is a Mag Float: Mag-Float Magnetic Aquarium Glass Cleaner -Medium at Big Al's Online

I use the mag float for diatoms and easy to remove algae on the glass. A razor works a lot better for other types of algae. I usually scrape during a water change when the water level is low so I can easily pull out algae that scrapes off.

Warped1, please to not use a razor on an acrylic tank. They are for glass. There are scrapers for acrylic. Just in case you have an acrylic tank....

Marineland makes an "acrylic razor" which is basically a plastic razor blade that won't scratch acrylic. Sometimes having an acrylic tank is really a drag.

its a magnet, one half goes on the inside of the tank and the other goes out the out and you move it around the tank to get algae off. =)
