Use a scrubber to clean calcium off plastic. Don't use it on glass; it scratches. That goes for acrylic tanks too.
Good point, suddenly remembers the anger from seeing the 0.7 gallon betta bowl.
Just to confirm
Ok, so for cleaning the plastic buy a scrubber because a razor is a bad idea, right?
For the Glass a razor like the one i use on my face is a good idea, right?
So if I shouldn't rinse in tap water how excatly should I clean my gems(subtrate) when I do wish to clean them? Does this apply to my decor too?
How excatly should I trade out new filter media from the old?
