If it's on the outside, I'd get those oil clotting papers from the beauty supply store. You may need a lot by the looks of things.

Try wiping it with acetone or nailpolish remover. Be careful and don't get it inside the tank, obviously.

I would use a gentle degreaser (I have used method on my tanks, no problems.)

Do you have any goo-gone or other solvent-type stuff? That may work. I really don't know what else would work, except lots of elbow grease.

Please make sure your fish is OK...if that's oil on plastic, it can spread rapidly, even if you can't see it. And it might keep spreading.

Baby oil might work, with some elbow grease.
