Are you too far into your cycling process, cos nail polish remover gets adhesive gunk off brilliantly, but you'd obvoiusly not want it in your tank so you'd have to start over...
I have no idea if the stuff is toxic, although i wouldn't have thought so as it's a product for a fish tank, and my usual way of getting gunk of any kind off my tank is to use one of the olde fasioned razor blades and slice it off with a gentle sawing motion as you run the razor flat across the glass. A stanly knife blade or broad flat craft knife blade will do the trick too.
I wouldn't say you need a new tank, at the very worst, that is if someone comes along and says tha tthis adhesive is deadly to your fish, all you ned to do is empty the tank and give it a good scrub with nail polish remover, or some commercial product that does a similar job (there a a few out there) and make sure that you rinse the tank out good and proper and let it dry before filling it up and re-starting your cycling process. Annoying, but cheaper than getting a new tank! Hope that's some help!
