I've used vinegar and dish detergent plus baking soda to get rid of cloudy glass and nothing works. What else can I do?
You can use bleach and water or vinegar and water. Complete instructions are here:aquariumadviser.com/
I have a fish tank with two goldfish and a red eared slider turtle in it. I have some hard water/foggy stains on part of the glass that is not under water now. How do I clean the glass without killing the turtle and his pets? The tank is 30 gallons, and there is about 25-27 gallons of water in it.
Empty the tank and scour with salt. Rinse well and you're good to go. I've done this with my aquariums for several years.
i bought a magnet scrubber. it looks like a card stamp but has a powerful magnet on one side and the other side has a scrubber pad. one side goes on the inside of the tank and the other on the outside.
you just move your side around and the scrubber cleans off the inside of the tank. can be easily moved to each side of the tank. pet store should have them.
If you have something else to put the turtle and fish in for a little bit, just lay the aquarium on its side and soak a hand towel in vinegar then lay it on the water stain for a half hour or so. Rotate the tank and do the same with all four sides.
If you don't want to empty it, you can use a razor blade to scrape it off.
THANK YOU all. I used the razor technique as I JUST cleaned out the turtle and fish. The razor worked well. :)
I just take a new green scouring pad and use the fine aquarium sand. It works really well and takes maybe 5 minutes to clean my whole 29 gallon tank, even with two inches of hard water stains on the top.
