We don’t know about ya’ll, but the Dobie ‘dish scrubber’ has been one of the most important aquarium tools in our aquarium life for nearly 15 years. If you haven’t been using the Dobie scouring pad to clean everything from your glass, to pipes, skimmers, pumps and sumps, then you definitely haven’t been using the right tool for the job.
This innovative sponge is covered with a scrubbing material that is tough on algaes but won’t scratch acrylic tanks or equipment, and best of all they’re available at your local grocery store so no aquarium tax on what amounts to a tiny bit of foam and plastic. The staple aquarium cleaning accessory that is the Dobie cleaning pad is has finally been released in more than the standard yellow color.
The coarse plastic scrubbing surface does get soft and less abrasive over time but since ALL of our used Dobie pads are yellow, it’s been hard to tell which is the new one, and which are the old ones. Now coming in a blue, red, & green multipack of colors, in addition to the standard yellow we’ll have four different hues to color coordinate the ‘life cycle’ of this tireless aquarium cleaning pad.
