 Hey,  
 Has  nyone  used  oxalic  acid  to  get  rid  of  the  salt  and  calcium  deposits  from  the  tank??  Heard  it  works  great.  And  pretty  cheap  too  500g  for  170rs.

 I  have  never  heard  of  using  oxalic  acid  to  clean  fish  tank  (im  dumb),  quick  search  disclosed  that,   it  is  used  in  the  pharmaceutical  industry,  used  as  bleaching,  grinding,  remove  calcium  in  water  treatment  plants/  industries  &  also  used  as  rust  remover  in  metal  treatment  industry.
 
 On  the  other  hand  I  have  head  hobbyist  using  muriatic  acid  which  is  nothing  more  than  hydrochloric  acid  in  a  diluted  water  solution.  Im  not  sure  of  the  equation  about  how  much  more  you  should  dilute  it  further.
 
 I  personally  prefer  vinagar  &  lemon  juice  which  works  like  charm  for  me.  Furthermore  on  a  personal  note  it’s  far  better  to  use  mildly/less  acid  solution  than  a  stronger  solution.
 
 Please  ensure  precaution  before  taking  a  step  further;   wear  rubber  gloves,  using  brush  &  don't  let  it  for  long  time  <30  minutes

 I  used  100%  oxalic  acid  and  soaked  for  5  minutes  on  each  side,  and  washed  well,  it  kinda  worked.  the  glass  had  some  deposits  left  but  was  pretty  clear  with  the  water  in,  way  better  than  it  was  before  (almost  white).
