I have that starting on the side of my tank glass I'm just glad its not on the front. I have tryed getting it off aswell and had no luck but it doesn't bother me so I just left it. But I can see how that would get on your nerves being on the front of the glass. The only thing I didn't try was to lower my water below it to make it easyer and try with a razor blade.

I took a razor blade to the glass, it did absolutely nothing... I couldn't even scratch it off with the edge of the razor. Although I did notice some teeth marks in the fog from my nerite snails.

Any other ideas?

I've used body shop rubbing compound

to take some of the mineral deposits and cloudiness away from glass. My tanks were empty at the time, so that might not work if you have water in the tank.

I've also used rubbing compound (medium grit) on my glass versa tops and it removed a lot of the haze. On the really old ones (20 years old) the glass is permanently etched by the mineral deposits and the haze doesn't come off with anything - vinegar, muriatic acid, razor blade, steel wool, etc.
