Algae

I have a bio cube 16 with lights on a timer to simulate morning noon and evening. Getting a bit of algae on the glass. Hoping snails will help but any other suggestions?

Algae on the glass happens to everyone and is unavoidable. Snails won't solve it, a good scrubber like a magfloat will.

Yeah i've been using one but it doesn't really seem to get it. Maybe a razor?

Calcium based algae can be more difficult. I have a scraper just for it, but razor blades work as well. If you keep up with something like a mag float it will be harder for calcium based algae to take root.
