What do I do to clean my aquarium glass?

As in a previous thread I mentioned I am going to be setting up my previous tank again. Its been sitting dry for about over a month now. I want to clean the glass so its not dirty. Can I just use glass cleaner? or do I use water that I pour into the tank as im filling it up?

hi
i wouldn't advise glass cleaner,as this could lead onto poisioned fish,
use a mix of vinigar and water,you should find it comes off with that,
if you have stubbon calcuim build up,you can carefully scrape it off with a razor blade,
after wash the tank a couple of times with fresh water,before the final fill.
hth. :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

yep...NO GLASS CLEANER. you want to keep your tank free of any chemicals( such as soap, detergent, etc)
