    Show us a before and after picture of your nasty coralline algae on your aquarium glass and your method for removing it. Make us cry with the stories of your pain. Show us the calluses, the sweat and the food that burned while you scraped. In other words, if you struggle with coralline algae in your tank, this is the contest for you. A couple pics and a good whine could win you a Flipper Cleaner, the latest coralline destroyer. We will give away two new Flipper Cleaners this Friday at 12pm Pacific to a couple 3reefers with good pics and tales of whoa. Good luck! :)

    You are correct - looking for pics that show current coralline and your cleaning methods.
    Not reasons why you don't need a Flipper. :) Thanks!

    LOL, I cleaned my back glass a few weeks ago. I used a putty knife to get it off. Took me about 3 hours over a couple of days. I had to stop every 15 minutes or so to pry my hand off the knife to rub the cramps out. I woke the next day after scraping with aching hand, fingers, back and shoulder. The coralline was about 1/32" thick.
