New 210G Tank!!!

Hi all, just wanted to share that I just purchased a 210G for my new setup. A friend had an acrylic 210 with stand and any accessories I could ever need and he wanted to get rid of it. He asked for 700 and i gladly took it. The list of items with it is tremendous, including metal halide lights (3) and an absolutely HUGE protien skimmer and an awesome refugium sump combo. This will be the new home for my Dogface and Clown Trigger. I'll also post some pics soon.

But question being, There is that calcium deposit on the back of the tank. How do I get that off without scratching the tank or using any chemicals? Any tricks anyone knows of?

I've always been able to get it off with FW and a bit of rubbing either with my hand or a paper towel.....though I didnt have nearly the buildup that you ave on the back of that tank!!! Awesome buy!!! I wish I could get that lucky!!!

I was REALLY lucky on this one. It was in his garage and he didnt set it back up after he moved and just wanted it gone. Is that calcium bad for the water if not all of it is removed?

It won't hurt, in fact, once you get water in there, you can easily wipe it off. Mine had the same thing.

Ok, thanks Roka, good to know. I still have to get the plumbing for it, so I think within a week I should be adding water. This size of a set up is alot harder than I thought it was going to be!!!
