Red face Glass vs. acrylic pads

This is a weird question, don't laugh.

Would the white algae pads (for acrylic tanks) work just as well as the glass-specific blue pads, for my 10 gallon glass tank? The reason I'm asking is the pad for glass aquariums just seem SO rough and I'm paranoid of scratching, I suppose. Plus the white pad would help the algae show up better as it gets cleaned off.

Would that be ok and still work?

What works for acrylic pretty much works for glass. Sometimes you have to use a little more elbow grease, though. :) Personally, I just use pieces 50 micron filter pad sheets--I have to buy them for my filters anyway, and the pad itself is really soft, and yet very efficient as an algae scrubber.

Yes, they work. I have both since I have both kinds of tanks & have used the white pad on glass when I'm in a hurry. Sometimes you have to scrub a little harder, but it works. :)

Thanks both of you for helping to solve my dilemma! I'll go ahead and just use the white ones.
