  1. @vwashbur, yea I did it with just the vinegar itself. I also tried it with baking soda and rubbing it with lemon but it didn't even touch the stains @rdoyle225, I don't think I want to risk it with the clr lol. I also don't want to spend anymore money on this thing if I'm not sure it'll work.
  2. Ok I give up! The tank wins. I think its just permanently stained :/ I'm super frustrated and my whole house smells like vinegar
  3. Haha I guess ill see what I can do. Thanks for all the advice, appreciate it.
  4. I just took a picture of it
  5. It looks kinda like this: http://www.google.com/search?q=hard%20water%20stain%20fish%20tank&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&client=safari&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=_qP2T7C8AurM2gXAnoH7Bg&biw=768&bih=928&sei=AKT2T8XYNojc2gXQ_ZWBBw#biv=i|12;d|EGf4nLVlHK9AMM:
  6. Yea I think it's hard water stains. At this point I feel like just reselling it and try to buy a new one. Definitely not worth all the work/time trying to clean and repaint it.
  7. So I recently bought a 40 gallon tank off craigslist for $15. I had two small goldfish in a ten gallon and was hoping to give them a bigger home. Anyways, I thought $15 was a pretty good deal until I got home and started cleaning it. The black paint on the frame began peeling off so i spent hours scraping it all off and the frame is actually brown, which i dont really like. Also, half the tank looks really foggy on the glass. I tried spraying it down with hot water, soaking it in vinegar/baking soda, and scrubbing the hell out of it, but its just not coming off?! Is there any way to make it look new again?? I've literally spent two days trying to clean this thing up!
