Question for everyone. I just moved, and knowing I was moving I sort of neglected my tank after an anemone died last July and killed everything but a few fish in my tank. Well the coraline algae was growing crazy on my tank (acrylic) and I just let it go. Tank is moved and in the process of being set up. Can I scrape the coraline off using a credit card (usual technique) with a spray bottle of vinegar and water, or should I fill the tank with water and do it that way. I want to avoid any scratches if possible. If I wait until the tank is running again what sort of blowback could I have from that algae being scraped into the water column. I’m guessing it is dead....but the coraline on my rocks should be okay as they are still in water etc.
OR anyone in columbus familiar with polishing acrylic tanks and want to come buff my algae and any scratches out....I’ll $$
