    I picked up a used bio cube and everything works but it's just encrusted with salt deposits and I'm not sure what the most effective way to clean it is. There are parts of the built in sump that I cannot get to to scrape it out and the glass looks like its in good condition under that salt so I don't want to scratch it at all. Would soaking it in vinegar or some other mild acid be effective without eating away at the seals? I would like to get as much salt out of all parts of the tank as possible since I haven't decided if I'm going to start a saltwater tank which I've never done or just use it for FW.

    Vinegar works well.
