what is on your glass? if its algae, time and balance and maybe some snails. i scrape mine about once a week, it stays pretty clean, but any long and i get a nice thin film of algae starting, everyone says over time and as things balance out, the algae will stop growing, so just keep at it. the magfloat scraper is your friend!

My 135-gallon has more algae growth on the glass than the 12-gallon nano but I chalk it up to the metal halide lights. I use the magnetic cleaners too almost every day on the front glass and scrape away with either a blade or a plastic scraper when it gets bad in the back. It's one of those maintenance duties.
