I had algae form on the wall of my non glass tank at work. I scrubbed it off but now there are white spots where it used to be.

Can i scrape this off without damaging the walls of the tank?

I have a glass tank at home and i use a razor blade to scrape it off.

I don't know what this tank is made of so I don't want to damage it.

here is a pic

my guess if it's not glass then it's acrylic.. most likely you scratched the acrylic. you may be able to find a scratch removal kit for acrylic aquariums..

I don't think it's scratches because it's only where the algae was.

it's in the exact same pattern as the algae.

I guess my main question was can i use a razor on acrylic?
