I assume you mean when the tank is set up with fish and such?

I use a kent proscraper for the inside and a microfiber cloth for the outside.

I use a razor blade on the inside. For the outside I use vinegar and paper towels.

Wet paper towel for the outside and scraper or sponge for the inside.

Loricariads for the inside, and a damp towel for the outside. Most of mine are soft water tanks so there is not a lot of mineral build up.

I use a wide paint scraper from walmart. The razor blade does a better job but it takes too long for me. For the outside, I use a vinegar / water mixture. I use newspaper instead of paper towels though. Using newspaper to clean glass and mirrors doesn't smear or leave lint behind and you can get a year supply from one Sunday newspaper.
