Hi everyone, I am new to acrylic tank, right now I am using a cc card and a sponge to clean the tanks, I wonder if there are any ways safely to clean it with out having to put my hands inside the water? Please let me know the brand name or where to purchase if there are some tools made for it, many thanks !

Fill the tank up with water and add vinegar. Depending on the gallons will determine how much vinegar. 100g tank is use a gallon of vinegar. Then let the tank sit for a few days. The calcium will break down and make it a lot easier to take off coraline. I use a magic eraser after a vinegar bath

Original Magic Erasers, it’s safe for saltwater. Cut it thin long wise, I usually get three pieces out of one eraser. Then I use a magnet cleaner putting the Magic Eraser on the inside of the tank.

Hope this helps.

I am guessing this remedy is without livestock in the tank?
