How to get rid of corraline on old equipment?

I have a penguin filter im going to put in my girlfriends 10gallon tank. I used it when i first got my 10g tank to move water in my SW tank. It had some corraline growth on it. is there a way to remove it, withouth taking a razor blade to it? Something that might "melt" it off? IM afraid of using a razor blade and scratching the unit up and making it ugly.


Pics and specs coming soon...
