Yes, some kitchen sponges have chemicals built in, like some scouring pads. Just a plain sponge should be fine. Stanley blade is fine. Just keep it flat, so the corner doesn't scratch it.
Is it just salt? If so, it'll be fine.
Ah. They're spiroid worms. I'd just leave it, as they'll just grow back. Harmless filter feeders. They will be dead. Over time new ones will grow in high flow areas. Old shells will eventually break down.
Hi,If its a second hand tank then I would first fill it up with warm water and pour in whole bottle of hydrogen paroxide 9% solution ( tanks 30 gal + ). You can get this at any Tesco Pharmacy. Let it sit for 1 hour, this will eliminate any live organisms that might survive other chemicals. At the end just flush it properly, but dont get paranoid, its not a poison. Yes you can use tap water for cleaning, why not, just give it a flush with RO and wipe it dry. Its not like few drops of tap water would spike your PO4 and else. Dont worry.For any dirt on glass, dry - limescale like stains i would recommend Steel Wool - Fine grade, nothing works better on glass and will remove pretty much everything without scratching it ( dont press it too hard - test it on other area first ) Anything more stubborn, just use razor blade, each glide you do, wipe of what came off the glass to prevent scratching with loose material. Best of luck !Thanks
Thanks very much for the suggestions - I’ll get some hydrogen peroxide and steel wool next! The limescale like stains on the inside glass where the old water level used to be are a right pain to remove. Even a razor blade won’t get them off so hopefully the wire wool will do it.
