    I have a pretty good size piece of didgitata growing on my back glass any good ideas for scraping it off? Its growing great and is healthy but I will be breaking this tank down in the near future and would rather not kill it. Do they bond to the glass

    Not sure Dale and I'm just guessing, but can you scrape a razor blade along the glass and pry it lose?

    It will probably come right of the glass, I had a monti cap growing on the glass that came off with just a little tug!

    They stick to the glass but don't really adhere so it should just pop right off dale.
    It takes a long long time to build a coral reef. Step by step the reefs survive on partnerships. And the most important partners are you and I.
