    It wasn't too bad to clean. Vinegar is DISGUSTING smelling though. It's drying right now, tomorrow will add sealant and I hope it goes well.

    Time to search for the caulking gun.

    Have you tried to scrap it off with a razor blade ?

    That worked really well for me
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I am assuming you already tried a single sided razor blade followed up with rubbing alcohol?

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    The top corners are too thick and the razor can't get it off, then there are a few strands along the bottom that I'm having trouble with. But I don't want to scratch the tank. Anything I can put on it, maybe warm it with a hair dryer?

    Yeah have been using the razor and a baby spoon to scrape it off.
    Yes, a baby spoon. Worked well for the most part? LOL

    That's for after the razor work is done, I would just keep hacking/slicing away at it. Progress will be made

    you just have to keep applying the elbow grease you will scrape it all off eventually , don't be shy with the new razors , periodically changing to a fresh blade always helps & be careful i always end up slicing up my fingers when scraping silicone off glass
