Exclamation Pump/Tank Question

I have a thick white film (crystalized water im guessing) all over the pumps and a little on the sides of the tanks. What is a good cleaner to get this off? No matter what I use...It wont come off.

Welcome to the forum!

Have you tried a vinegar and water solution? That usually works pretty well.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Ill try

No I havent. I just tried scrubbing it and it didnt help any. I will have to try that. I want my pumps looking new instead of looking like they are trying to crystalize on me. Thanks for the help. Ill give it a try!

You can try a single edge razor blade on the tank glass. Spray a little water on the glass before you scrape it to prevent scratching. This is for glass tanks only!! As far as the pumps go, the vinegar suggested should work well.
