help on removing adhesives form new tank
 
Hello everyone!! im not new to fish tank land but ive never gotten a brand new tank before. Ive always been given tanks that people didnt want anymore. So my question is does anyone know of a good way to get the adhesives from the stickers out from inside the tank that wont scratch the glass or harm my cichlid family later on down the line when its all set up for them later? :-?

Take a razor blade, put it flat against the glass and scrape the adhesive off. If there is still leftover residue, put some vinegar on it and do it again. It won't scratch the tank if you keep the razor edge flat on the glass and the vinegar won't harm the fish, either.

baking soda,a little water and a regular magic eraser works well also.
