The question above is a good one, as canister filters can be directly responsible for the introduction of phosphate into the water, increasing the growth of problematic algaes. Knowing more background on your tank, I know this is not the situation.
I just went and bought this scraper that looks like a razor blade so I will try that. Thanks guys!
No canister filter on this tank.
