Super Skinny Algae Scraper

So simple pics aren't needed!

To get in behind rockwork and stuff you need a super skinny scraper.

Here it is:

1-Get a $1 bamboo stick from the dollar store. Not a flimsy one though.
2-Cut a piece of plastic to the size you want the scraper to be. Plastic should be very firm but still flex a litte.
3-Get a scrap of moulding which has a 45 degree surface.
4-Glue any fabric you like to the plastic. (plastic scouring pad, nylon stocking, the hook side of velcro, etc etc.

Drill a hole in the moulding to which you have mounted the scraper part so that the bamboo meats the block at 45 degrees.

Glue it a together.
