Cleaning The Inside Of The Glass

What do you use? My tank is very small{10X10X10}, the plants,driftwood, and rocks are very near the glass. If I use something like a mag float, it will uproot and disturb everything since the inside portion is so wide.

i use a "medium" tooth brush and a little bit of patience.

the cleaner nano-nater is talking about is called a "nimble nano" and you can get them at their website. i don't personally have one but they're very popular on nano-reef.com

and they will never scratch up glass or acrylic .

I took a razorblade, and chopstick. I superglued the razor blade to one end of the chopstick so that it would stay, then siliconed it. It works very well and it's very cheap to as well.

Just try to get the stainless ones.
