Removing that ADA sticker on the front?

For those of you with an ADA tank - how do you remove that "Quality Guaranteed for 5 years" sticker on the front without scratching the tank or anything? I have next to no nails to use for something like this and can't get it off, I got the tip peeled a little but can't go any further as if it has something stronger there.

Do I just need to try harder?

This is a really stupid issue but I don't know what to do

Go to a store and buy this spray in a can that removes stickers, dont try to peel it off with a knife or blade oryou will scratch you glass.

Is this really the only way to cleanly remove it? Seems kind of.. ah, for lack of a better word - lame? Does every owner have to do that to get it to look good?

I've filled my tank with water already and so I'd rather not empty it out so that I can rub hard against it and so it seems like that spray might be my only choice... *sigh*

Adding on to the spray idea...I would suggest goo-gone, which shouldn't be too hard to find. It's not a total waste of 5 dollars, personally I have used goo gone to remove oil stains from clothing and to remove oil/grime on car rims.

Oh, wow, didn't even think about that - I wouldn't mind grabbing that stuff since I know it has many uses, just didn't want to end up with something I wouldn't touch again.

Thanks!

Random side note - ADA Aquasoil works wonders, the pH is dropping enough that with crystal red shrimp, I won't have to do anything to modify the pH! :O

It is just a real strong sticker, once you get it started it comes off easy, if you don't have finger nails use a guitar pick or edge of credit card to get under it.

Goo-gone nice one! I wish they had that in Japan. That spray stuff is expensive and I only used it one time, but goo-gone can be used many times.

Corn oil come from processed corn
Olive oil comes from crushed olives
Canola oil comes from crushed canola seed

Where does baby oil come from? Is this why we have so many missing children?

Goo-gone question:
it seems to come in a dozen different packages and formulas!
which version is the most concentrated bang for your buck?
please provide a link to it selling or photo of the packaging.

I second Craig here, the sticker seems hard to take off at first but once you have it started it comes right off and doesn't leave any residue. No chemicals required.
