I shall try that. I was thinking Rubbing Alcohol and Salt could work. I could scrub with that.

When I first set up my 29g tank it was a hand-me-down and left-to-dry - totally GROSS. I set it up in the back yard and left it to soak in vinegar and water for a little while before I started. . .I was AMAZED at how quickly vinegar and water took it off. If it's a glass tank, you might need a little bit of elbow grease and a scrubby pad or algae blade, but mine was super yuggy, and it came off really easily! Good luck - and don't forget to rinse until the cows come home!

hahah nice description. I'm going to rinse that thing until my cows turn into bulls. :)

The majority of the gunk is not on the glass and not even in the tank, its in the rest of the equipment like the top of the lighting and a little on the filter and heater.

It should be too much work once I soak it for a bit. I get to do that in about 1 hour :)
