Does anyone here have recommendations to keep purple/coraline algae from growing on my glass? I'm scraping it off with a razorblade, but would like to not have to do this. It reforms pretty quick.

Thanks

Gwen

Now you know why some people are ok with no Coralline growing in thier tank. Some consider it a nuisance algae.

If you clean your glass periodically, it will prevent the coraline algae from establishing itself there. I use my mag-float every three days, no algae on class but where I cannot get.

Thanks Metal and Wake. I need to start that. I have one, but don't use it. I appreciate the advise. I do notice that it won't take off coraline that is already there, but you have a good point, in using it to prevent it from starting
