I don't see much posted about cleaning the inside of the glass. Does anyone use anything? To date, I have not felt the need to clean mine but am starting to see areas that could probably use a wipe down when I am draining the water.

Care to share?

I used to use a magnet cleaner but started finding I was starting to scratch the glass. I now use Seachem's Algae Pads. They do a great job.

How long do they usually last Zimmy? Are they a one shot deal? I just read a review that said they are great for getting algae out of scratches.

I've been using the same one for about a year and there's no sign of it needing replacement (they come in a pack of 3). You just squeeze them under the tap after using them to get all the gunk off and they're as good as new.

Thanks. I'll try them out.

And it appears it was water deposits/stains in the shape of my plecos' mouths that I was seeing when the tank is drained.

This was my concern when I opened the package of the magnet cleaner I bought and found a velcro type surface. I used a polishing pad between the magnet and glass and it removed the water stains perfectly. Thanks for posting that. :thumb:
