Question ratio for water and vinegar to clean tank

I've got a tank that I need to clean, and I've heard that using vinegar is good for cleaning it. What should the ratio be between the water and vinegar? Does anyone know?

idk! I tried to ask the same question on here and didn't get a response.

I am mostly posting to subscribe to this thread, as I have tanks I need to clean.

Probably because nobody who's read this really knows. Also because you don't necessarily need to dilute vinegar, just use it and rinse the object several times. At least until you don't smell any traces of vinegar.

You usually dilute if you are using something like bleach which I belive is about 5-10% bleach. Traces of bleach, however, are worse for the fish than traces of vinegar.
