Starting a 135 gal FOWLR

Hi all,

It's the newest, new guy with a simple question....... I purchased a used tank that was a freshwater system and I will be turning it into a FOWLR, there is some residue buildup on the glass, any suggestions on how to clean it, maybe some home remedies?? I've heard about using vinegar and some table salt!

I often use a bucket of water and a couple caps of bleach. After you get it off make sure to rinse good and then completely air dry the tank. Letting it air dry will get rid of any chlorine that you might not have got.

BTW welcome aboard and congrats on the new tank.
