I have found an actual use for a PetCo discount card. It can be used effectively to scrape coralline off of glass.

when I had that problem I picked up a razor blade scrapper from my LFS. the head is angled so it doesn't scratch the glass at all and it has an adjustable handle so when you have to go all the way down to the sand it will reach. it works reallllly well, I think it was about $10-$15. hope this helps!

well i gave up on trying to correct the issue via water params, i took a scraper and worked at it for a good 20 minutes and got it off. Now im just trying to mag float the glass every day to try and stop the growth, or at least slow it down.
