Hi Rich, I asked one of my friends who works for several of the LFS. He 
said they use Python RYDYT2 for tanks and equipment that have major 
buildup problems. 
The label says:
* A heavy-duty aquarium cleaner for glass or acrylic tanks.
* Removes water scale and lime deposits
* Use on empty aquariums only
You might give it a try.
