[APD] RE:Glass Cleaner

Now how about a method to clear deposits you should have cleaned before you filled, planted, and stocked the tank?

If not too hardened, I have found that vinegar works fairly well. Soak
it to soften, then gently scrape with a razor blade if it doesn't all

Pool acid (3 molar hydrochloric) is hazardous but more efficient. Here
we have a product called "CLR" that works pretty well, too.
[CLR=Calcium,Lime,Rust] Burns skin and eyes, so great care is needed
when using it.
