    Cloudy deposits on inside of Glass

    Aloha Scape bros and bro-ettes. It has been awhile since I posted here and I am happy to get back to good old SCAPE!
    I could no longer live with my 10-gallon scape and it was time to upgrade. I purchased a used 40 Gallon breeder and I am now scaping it. It is in good condition and no leaks so we are good to go!
    There is no water in it yet and I am sure that it will not show up too much once I get water in, but I still want it GONE. I tried using a wet cloth with some Hydrogen Peroxide on it and it is not coming off. It appears to be water spots or limescale or something. So, does anyone have a good way to get this ugly stuff off the inside of the glass???

    If I remember correct I use (white) vinegar to clean my glass and equipment;
    50/50 or however you wanna do it with water
    You can let it sit for 30 mins and wash thoroughly
    Hopefully it helps

    I use full vinegar and scrub with Ajax green pads. Will get it to 90. Anything remainig a razor blade will clear. I use it all the time. I also hear that if you heat up the vinegar it helps. Iíve tried it but didnít notice any difference.

    I probably should have done this before I put the substrate and hardscape in so I could rinse. I was going to put water in tonight.
