Re: NANFA-- cleaning acrylic

thanks for the good advice guys.
i will check my grocery or dollar general store before ordering something
mailorder. seems like they make a pure plastic round weave scrubby. just a curled
up mess of fine tubular plastic strands. pure plastic... that should not
scratch if i keep the grit out.
i think i know what todd speaks of... but... They're kinda a "pad" but have
like holes and stuff.
holes and stuff?
i have a ton of filter floss and could try that easily.
as for algae sticking to the acrylic... its all over and stringy trailing to
the overflow run. messy.
the windowed pool faces south and im in for a endless battle, but if i can
keep a pad handy it will be easy enough to keep clean.
i agree about getting ANY grit or sand in a pad... even when cleaning glass.
it will scratch quick! a bunch of my old aquariums are scratched up down low.
im much more careful now.
