glass cleaner

:p I've just discovered a great cleaning aid. You'all may already know about it, but I've had difficulty cleaning the outside of my saltwater tank.

Invisible glass wipes are great. You're not supposed to need to wipe it off, but I did. I used the wipes a couple of times then dried the glass with a soft cloth. The glass shines with no streaks. Yeah.

I use windex on the outside glass. I just dont spray it in the same room. I spray it on a paper towel in the next room and then wipe the outside of the tank.

I am talking about cleaning the outside of the tank. Not the inside.

Yes, you clean the outside, but if the product has ammonia, the ammonia will evaporate and be taken in by your water and that will kill your fish. That is the reason for using a "non-ammonia" glass cleaner.
