Original magic erasers. It has to be the original, the others have stuff added to them. It works wonders and won’t scratch at all. I also have a magnetic scraper that came with an acrylic cleaner pad. I cut slices of magic eraser to sandwich on there when using it and it works great. The only time I need to get my hand in the tank with the eraser is if I really need scrub off some coralline growth. This is the magnet

Is this the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser you're talking about? https://www.mrclean.com/en-us/shop-products/magic-erasers/magic-eraser-original. I wanted to make sure. Thanks.
