If all you used was vinegar that shouldn't be necessary. Vinegar's just a really weak acid the the worst it's going to do, should any remain in the tank, is lower your pH and hardness a bit but I wouldn't even bet on that since you've rinsed it (and the volume of water is going to dilute it down quite a bit).

Yea, vinegar is all I used. I tried to scrape some of these scuffs with the razor, but its as if they are stuck to the glass permanently. They aren't really noticeable when its filled up until you look at them from the side. Anyhow, I've given up on crystal clarity and am going to start cleaning the rock tomorrow. Heres some pics from the last time I filled it up. You guys will all probably tell me that it looks fine and I'm crazy, but the second pic is proof of the scuff! I swear it irks me!

I would not place fish in the tank until the tank has (cycled). If you plan on cycling with a few small active fish such as blood fin tetras,sivertipped tetras, Pristella tetras ,or small danios, I would let the tank run with filter and heater for a week before adding the small fish to ensure everything is operating correctly.
For the scuff mark, I might paint that side of the tank (outside) ,with a sand colored paint and or place a plant or two there to help hide the spot. Tank looks good to me.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
