    I need the flipper in a bad way. Im using a regular razor blade holding it with my fingers. Needless to say I normally end up dropping the blade in the most hard to reach locations ... IF Im lucky enough not to cut my fingers 1st

    does green film algae that requires blood and sweat to remove count or just the pretty purple stuff?

    Film algae should come off much easier Ashevillian. Looking for the nasty stuff that requires a Flipper like CharlotteReefer's entry above.

    Nice entry CharlotteReefer! That looks painful! You do need a Flipper. :lol:

    Lol either my film algae is stubborn or my scrapper sucks because I will literally scrap the glass until my arms hurt and still don't get clean glass. If coralline is considered a problem I'd say you guys have it made in the shade!

    here is the before: [​IMG]


    and the after: [​IMG]



    its a real pain when you have to stand on your toes and have your whole arm in the water using some cheap razor to remove some stuck on coraline algae. its even worse when you have to try not and break off corals :(
