DIY filter question.

I am in the process of making my self a secondary filter with a liquidized media bed using a plastic bottle and cut up straws, there was a label on the bottle which I peeled off and it came off clean but left a strip of glue on the side of the bottle, what is my best bet to get this off? i want to completely remove it since it is going in with my fish, and since it is going in with the fish I dont want to use anything too harsh to remove the glue.

Try rubbing it with peanut butter.

Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

You should be fine using a tiny bit of goo gone or mineral spirits. Just make sure you wash the bottle off before putting in the tank.

hot water and one of those curly metal scrubbers not steel wool but the ones that are curled up strips it should take it right off.
