Red face Can I wash my Accessories and glass...

So Today I was gonna change my water and clean out the accessories in my tank. I wasnt sure if I was allowed tho so I left it for now. But my sunken ship is getting some crazy algea growth on the sails so I wanted to take it out and clean it real good but need to use soap or something since the sails are fabric. Is there any chemical or soap that I can use to clean them and same with the glass. I have a lot of calcium on the glass cuz of hard water... Whats good to use on that. Thanks in advance for the help!

never use soap or chemicals...... really hot water is fine and vinegar if you must but never a chemical... this stuff never get all the way out and will kill off your tank present and future stock...

Agreed. I'm not sure I'd use the vinegar on the inside of a set-up tank though as that could mess with your pH. I'd just use water and a razor blade for that.

you if the sails are getting algae on them you could use the vinegar and water combo mentioned above. I agree that using vinegar inside the tank may not be wise. I usually use a papertowel or a razorblade like batman mentioned.
