Greetings gang,

Have anyone use API safe and easy glass cleaning or jungle Lime off? I'm cleaning up some used tanks I recently obtained and warm water and elbow grease doesn't cut it. I can use using vinegar if all fails just that it's too stinky.

thanks Majerah, I totally forgot about the razor method, I want to try the liquid cleaners before I start scraping with a razor.

BTW what are you using to cover your mac tank?

The top I have a glass canopy,that was made for a larger tank,40 gallon I believe.It hangs over the edges quite a bit but is super heavy.Ive seen them knock the thinner glass canopies up so I think this is better.The back has the typical plastic strip to cut for the filter tubes and I have any gaps covered with craft canvas.The back is painted and one side is covered with a towel,and I cover the front and some of the other side with another towel.Paranoid,yes,but they cant fly to their doom so im content,lol.
