I've also read a lemon might work. And also clr but I don't recommend that its a harsh chemical and that would make me nervous to put fish in the tank if I used that

I use a green scrub pad, vinegar and salt. Then rinse the tank very well. Works great.

I've heard salt as well with warm vinegar, never tried out though

Let me know what works for you ziggs, next week I'm getting two tanks one a 55 and one larger than that, not sure what size though for $25 each. I haven't seen them yet but I'm told they are really dirty

I actually purchased a mop/hand held steamer and it works well removing water stains from my lid.

I think I paid about $130 for it. It came with a couple of scrubber type attachments. Good thing about it is it being chemical free.

I also have a battery operated scrubber, kinda looks like an oversized toothbrush, came with lots of attachments. I use that to detail clean my filter.
