+1 to vinegar and scrubber. If it's too calcified and the scrubber doesn't work, use a razor blade (glass only no acrylic). Angle the blade and don't shift from left to right to avoid scratches.

When you say scrubber do you mean like the scratchy side of a sponge?

And yes, if it's a glass tank, use the rough side of a sponge or one of those green scrubby pads.



Had to clean up a 10 gallon tank that water was allowed to dry out in it, leaving mineral deposits all over the bottom and sides. First time got most of the mineral deposits off, but took at least 3 times to get all of it and the glass is fine. You may only need to do it once?

Barkeepers friend, or automotive rubbing compound.... The first one is the easier option.

There is something more to BKF than just the acid, I tried using just oxalic acid(toxic), no results.
