If they are don't clean them with cleaner like windex etc. It will craze the tank. Use just freshwater or buff it out if it gets dirty.
Never clean any tank with windex or any other chemical, ro/di water on a paper towel will clean the glass. Many tanks lost because of chemical use like windex and air freshners.

For water drops or salt creep just wipe it and buff it out. For more stubborn marks use rodi water, if that doesn't get it then use vinegar watered down with rodi. NEVER EVER USE CHEMICALS LIKE WINDEX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vinegar + ro/di is your best bet besides buffing it out. You can check out the crazing on YouTube. I seen one when a guys wife did it on his 30 year old 250 gal tank. It was a bad craze and he wasn't too happy about it.
