Final cleaning

Well, I was able to sell my LR, fish, snails, crabs and chaeto from my 125 gal. If you remember, I am giving up the hobby due to personal reasons. So, now I have a dirty 125 gal tank to give final cleaning to. It has just about 1" of live sand and water left in the bottom. Due to pulling the sand out with a little shovel, the inside of glass is smudged. I plan on using my wet/dry shop vac to pull out what is remaining. What should I do to clean off the glass? I have RODI water available in a big garbage type container (used only for RODI water).
Your advice will be greatly appreciated.

vinegar and razor blades will get the glass good and clean... it will take several razor blades though if you have alot of coraline on the glass

Either Vinegar or bleach and some scraping with a scraper or blades as mentioned above.
