...Liz, you mention wiping down your tanks from time to time...what do you use for that?...
If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.

sometimes a 3M scrubby pad, sometimes a microfiber cloth.  Barb just uses paper towels.
Always move forward. Never look back.

Iíve used a generic version of it on my tanks. It worked great at wipedowns but they break down easily. The cost of the generics is way cheaper than the Mr. Clean and Mr. Clean breaks down easily also. When I get home Iíll post the link from Amazon. Iím at the dentist now to start a root canal.

I tried them.  They seemed like a good idea at the time but like Willie said, they break down quickly.

Amnd you have to be VERY careful there is no cleaning agent/ anti mildew agent in the sponges.  I do use paper towels, and just wipe real hard if tough algae.  I have also used a razor blade.  Nothing gets by that.

I'm posting the link anyway. This is the same thing as the Mr.Clean but with no additional cleaning material added. As you can see it is much cheaper too.
