Fighting Salt creeping, how do you keep you rtank clean?

I just wanted to know what everyone is using or doing to avoid salt creep on their tanks. What works best to remove it and ways to prevent it.

Minimizing splash is the only way to prevent it. I run a HOB on my nano and just keep the tank topped off every day so that it doesn't splash and creep.

To clean it, a damp rag is good, but don't let the crystals fall into the tank. They will raise the SG, and if they land on a coral, can do some serious damage.
