Hi all, my friend recently gave me a 70 litre tank he was not using. The bottom of the tank had sort of a thin paper on the bottom of the glass, it was all ripped so I removed it.
However I am now left with residue on the outsides that I am desperate to remove, I fear filling the tank up may be dangerous as it could eventually crack due to the uneven residue, any ideas how to remove?

I would try taking a razor blade/razor scraper and scrape it off. You may have to change the blade a number of times as it will dull against the glass. Could also try some kind of cleaner/chemical (maybe a combo of rubbing alcohol and vinegar, or GooGone???), however, you wanna make sure if you use a chemical it isn’t going to affect the silicone and that you get it all off so it won’t affect the fish (probably not as important if it’s on the outside bottom of the tank but still).
