    Sorry- another fish tank question! But the fish section is really quite dead!

    I took a partition out my tank (it was there for some sort of internal filter) the guy had done a bad job on the silicone and the thing was going to be in the way.
    Now I have still got silicone on the front of my tank! The back I am not worried about I am getting 3D background.

    What can I use that wont scratch the glass and will remove all the silicone stuck to the front?

    I had exactly the same problem. I got a Stanley knife blade any ran it up the glass at about 45 degrees. It took it off really well and nearly whole. Just be careful not to do it too fast coz it will make a mess. Also watch your fingers, coz if you slip and catch them it bleeds like mad (from experience :eek: )
