    So I have a 60g tank with an 8" or so glass cross brace. Because my fish like to splash, mold has started growing on the underside where the light dosen't heat/dry the brace. How can I clean that off without poisoning my tank?

    I would just use a scrubber pad and manually remove it on a regular basis.

    Ok. I though because it was mold and not just alge it would need a clearer or something. I've dealt with mold issues and it needed a cleaner. That being said it was a lot more than the few spots on my tank.

    I'd try vinegar if scrubbing didn't work. I've used it in my tank for water deposits/algae, but it may work on mould too.

    Would it mess up my tank if it drips? It's a big tank but I'm parinoid.

    Mine is a 37 gallon and it didn't mess up my tank.

    I would say if you're getting it out of there regularly that it's not going to have a chance to form spores and spread.

    Good to know.

    Yeah. It's just a few spots. My other tank never did that but it was only 12" wide and the light was hot enough it kept the lids dry. This one is 18" wide.
