Hard Water Lines

Ive got a 46 gallon bowfront freshwater aquarium with hard water lines at the water surface. How can I remove them without using strong chemicals that would hard my fish?

My mag-cleaner took care of the lines when I initially filled up my tank.

Or use vinegar in an empty tank. Otherwise, a scrubbie & elbow grease for a glass tank.
