I just got out a 29gal tank from my basement. It's been sitting there for probably 10 years. It's in good shape other than the limescale. I've tried soaking in vinegar, lemon juice, and even CLR (just on the glass) but nothing will take it off. HELP

Try using a razor blade and vinegar. Or could try using chemicals, just avoid the plastic.
I've tried a razor blade, but I didn't do it while the vinegar was on the glass. Thanks for the tip, I'll try it next!

I tried everything on one 10 gallon and could not remove the stains, I learned next time that a water line on a used tank is impossible to remove. FYI I tried, razor, magic eraser,lime,lemon,alcohol,scrubbies,vinegar, and then any chemical I had in house and every tip on the internet and water line could not be removed.
