Thumbs down Top Fin Strikes again.

Back in 2011 I purchased a 5 gallon standard aquarium from one of the big box pet stores because I was able to get it for an incredibly good price. I had stored it away until now. Got it out and the factory used two sided tape on the INSIDE OF THE TANK to plaster their name and advertising on a good 10 x8 inch chunk of paper. In trying to remove it parts of the paper and adhesive are stuck where the paper was attached. I have tried everything to remove it save for soap and chemicals, of course. All I succeeded in doing was spread the adhesive around more. I usually see the labeling like this attached by sliding it under the frame or use of a silicone that comes right off. Upon further inspection the tank was made by Top Fin. Why am I not surprised???!
Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove this safely?
if any Top Fin employee is reading this, please by all means tell me,

Had I known they had made this tank I wouldn't have touched it with a ten foot pole. And that is most likely why I got for a song.....no one else wanted to buy it.

you hit it on the head.....a razor blade! I had thought of that but didn't want to run to the store tonight. I may pick somd up to keep around in emergencies.

Tonight I felt pretty triumphant, I finally went and pulled out one of my 6 gallon longs and set that up. I took the Top Fin junk tank and went out to the garbage and gave it the heave ho. The shattering soothed my nerves, Why should I waste my precious time and energy on junk, when I do have tried and true tanks to use. The only reason I tried it was because I felt guilty for keeping it as long as I had and never using it.
