    In this case I would suggest the easy blade. Awesome tool and no need for loose razorblades.

  • Derek says:

    Awesome! I never thought of using a grease pen! I’ll have to try that out. I always end up missing a spot when I scrap because it wasn’t where I thought it was.

    Good tip. I’m a Mag-float man Myself. 🙂

  • true kevin but you can still miss a spot!

  • Kevin says:

    At first I thought you wanted to grease up the magnet and see what spots you had skipped.

    great idea

    Great tip thanks, have not used the grease pen for this before.

    But, for those of us with acrylic tanks we are not just stuck to the scrubbing pads and mag-floats. I have had great luck cleaning dirty old acrylic tanks and stubborn algae spots with a “plastic razor”.

    They are the same size and shape as the steel ones we use on glass but are made from a yellow or red plastic. I have never had the plastic razor scratch an acrylic tank, so must assume its a softer plastic than the tank.

    I have found that my local Ace Hardware has both these and the grease pens and the cost is very minimal.

  • Nick…interesting! i’ve never heard of such a thing. Thanks for sharing the tip
