I use a toothbrush for my smaller size (shallow) glass vessels, and a non-abrasive scouring pad (with my hand) for larger ones after dropping the water level.

I use an Aquaclear sponge to clean the glass in my tank. It's removed every algae I've encountered and never scratched anything. I imagine it would work fine for your bowl.

Thanks for your suggestions.
I tried to put a Nerite snail in there hoping i would clean the glass. But it went down into the substrate, i had to take it out beacuse all the digging mixed up the substrate. I have dirt with sand cap.
Is there any algae eating snails that dont dig into the substrate?

I just use a wet paper towel and a little elbow grease. White paper towel makes it easy to see where there is algae left on the glass. I drop the water level 2 inches at least so I don't splash from the movements then siphon out a bit more after finishing to suck up the removed algae before refilling.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.
