What does that mean? whats bouncy?

What do you mean by clean the tank, scrape the acrylic walls of the tank, or actually clean the gravel , plants, filter , etc.????

clean the Aggi off the walls

Its not AGGI its algae and buoyancy is not the same thing as bouncy   :P


I would do something like this : http://www.instructables.com/id/Fish-tank-cleaner/

Then on the outside I would have a car with a magnet driving the cleaner around form the outside ( with the cleaner on the inside)


How can it use it s own buoyancy ? Meaning you  want to change the buoyancy ( submarine) to clean the tank?  Thats a bit difficult!
