I'm assuming the nylon/fiberglass screen and not the metal wire screen?

I've kept African cichlids with a high ph 8.8+ and concrete water. I have used Lime away on my glass lids with no loss of fish. I have also used it in my tanks(with no livestock). Lime away is an acid and what counteracts acid? A base like say Baking soda.... no worries rinse and you're done. just add rinse water and dump a partial box of baking soda in with water splash around and all acid will be neutralized.
I have found that vinegar is the slow boat to china with deposits but yes it will work.

To buy aquatic life for the sole purpose of fixing something generally doesn't work
Anyway this is a buildup from hardwater not algae
