I found a solution to that type of problem. It is called Softscrub, a very mild abrasive kitchen liquid cleaner that will not scratch glass. I also use it regularly to clean a glass top stove. Be sure to rinse it well after wiping it off. You could use vinegar and water to rinse it.

I started cleaning friday & I'm starting to get aggravated. The vinegar & water would clean off the green stuff with no problem, but not the white haze (it would go away, but come right back when it dried). Bleach & water = same thing. Razor blade did nothing on the white haze stuff.

piranha, have you used the softscrub in an aquarium before? Yesterday I got so aggravated that I started calling LFS's pricing new aquariums...I'm back to my normal self now & I'm going to give this one more try & HOPE something works.

Just thought I'd give you all an update. I'm ready to at least see some water & rock in my aquarium instead of AIR!!!

DD I have used it on a glass cover and it cleaned the buildup very well. If you have very stubborn staining I would recommend using both the softscrub and new straight-edge razor blades.
