Nothing in the original Magic Eraser. The scented one has chemicals in it. Obviously, only the original one should be used for aquariums.

I've read at Reef-Central that the Magic Eraser is basically like 5000 grit sandpaper.

Magic Erasers are just extremely high grit sandpaper. I couldn't tell you the grit.
Estimated at 2500-3000 grit, per a discussion I read years ago where people were using it for restoring pinball playfields.

Some vigorous scrubbing was able to uniformly remove the time-yellowed surface of varnish, without removing a significant thickness. As I recall, everyone found it superior to anything else they'd tried.

I've been experimenting with Magic Erasers on my "test acrylic tank" for 5 days. I'm positive that Magic Erasers don't make microscratches as far as I'm concerned.
