| || | New 135 Gallon Tank (Question)
I bought a 135 gallon aquarium with wood stand, wood canopy top, Rena Filstar XP4 canister filter, 300 watt heater, river rock substrate and lava rock. Its a nice tank but has this mildew/mold on the light strip and the inside of the canopy top, because the previous owner never used any hoods with this tank. It also has this thin film on the inside of the glass that makes the tank look murky and not crystal clear. I've been taking a straight edged razor to it, but it still doesn't come off completely in some spots. Is there any type of cleaner I can use to help get this mold off the canopy/light strip and film off the inside glass of the tank? Any tips are appreciated as this straight edge razor thing takes a very long time.
Oh yea, I plan on throwing some cichlids in this tank. Maybe some oscars, angel fish, jack dempseys, convicts, you know something along these lines.
