I'll agree with the "soft" part -- but not with the "nibble a little".  In
the one protracted battle I fought with that nasty brown diatom filth, my
4-inch flying fox was just about as effective as the half dozen otocinclus
that I purchased for the job.  I watched him work his way along the glass,
clearing a swath in his path.
