    Anyone know how to get rid of calcium build up on the glass of my turtle tank without harming him? I also found a 20 gallon long in my basement that's completely covered in it. I'd like to put my leopard gecko in it if I could get rid of the calcium build up.

    Vinegar will get it right out. Clean the 20 gal first rinse it out well then put your turtle in that while you clean his tank.

    Soak a rag in vinegar and lay it on the spots, let sit for a few minutes, then wipe away. Make sure to rinse and dry it well after doing the vinegar treatment.

    Ok, I'll do this once I get some vinegar. Thanks for the help! :)

    Razors also work well with or without vinegar.

    I've used lemon juice for years on fish tanks and snake tanks. Rinse well after cleaning.

    Ok, maybe I'll try a combination of all this and see what happens. The only problem is getting enough lemon juice for a 75 gal and a 20 gal long that's COMPLETELY been covered in calcium stains for at least four years...
