So I recently bought a 40 gallon tank off craigslist for $15. I had two small goldfish in a ten gallon and was hoping to give them a bigger home. Anyways, I thought $15 was a pretty good deal until I got home and started cleaning it. The black paint on the frame began peeling off so i spent hours scraping it all off and the frame is actually brown, which i dont really like.
Also, half the tank looks really foggy on the glass. I tried spraying it down with hot water, soaking it in vinegar/baking soda, and scrubbing the hell out of it, but its just not coming off?! Is there any way to make it look new again?? I've literally spent two days trying to clean this thing up!
