    here are the pics, I'm thinkin if I shorten the hose in between the overflow and the sump it may solve the problem. sorry if the sizes are funky it took a bit to get them to spec.

    Coraline Algae on Acryllic Tank

    kent makes a scrapper designed for acrylic tanks. as for the bow front you have to go sideways with the scrapper. turn it horizontal and scrape left to right or right to left however you wish. it'll work. you'll get wet but your tank will get clean
