Hard water leaving white rings on tank, help!!

Hello everyone;

So I live in central Kansas and the water is really hard, thus when it evaporates it leave a white grim that you can't get off with just hot water.

I know you can't use soap or chemicals on the tanks so I'm just wondering what I can use? Is there a natural remedy or some cleaner that won't mess with the fish??

Thanks for any advice!
Sarah

You can use vinegar. :)

That plus hot water will get the hard water marks off, I have hard water here too where I live.

Hmm alright I'll give the vinegar a try, it hasn't been helping very much. Must just need to scrub harder. :P Thanks for the info!

Scrub more often. I will run a sponge in the inside of the tank every couple of days to avoid minerals from sticking to the glass. You can do it with your fish in the tank too.
