Electric Toothbrush to remove algae


I have had a really bad problem with GSA and now GDA developing on the sides of my glass. Razor was a no go on a plastic tank so I normally use a toothbrush.

Well, I ignored my algae and got a zebra nerite for my 5 gallon. I had hopes for him after hearing stories of them annihilating algae in some tanks. That didn't work.

I found an old electric toothbrush today and cleaned it off and tried it out. OMG it is the best! I don't know if anyone else has tried this but it worked great even being completely submerged! Now my tank is sparkling clean!

Just use a gift card or any plastic card. I use my old library card.
