my question is: is there something i can clean the whole thing with, that will remove the stubborn limescale and clean the smeary glass. something that wont harm my fish when im ready to add my fish to their new home?

White Vinegar should do the job. Use a scrapper to remove the heavy stubborn limescale and then fill the tank with lukewarm(NOT HOT) water and leave it for a few hours, even overnight and then give it a good scrub. It should remove most or all of the limescale and smears. Mix the vinegar and water as strong as possible. It may take a few goes to get it all off. You can target the really bad areas with neat vinegar. If possible, put the tank in your shower and give it a good rinse with warm water. Your heater can be used to maintain the water temp overnight....
