    Hi all, just bought a 2nd hand 6ft tank, which needs a good clean.
    The rear glass of the tank has a coat of paint on it, which is not very neat, and I would like to have it removed.

    Any tips on what/how to go ahead with removing the paint?

    Yeah bud, get one of those plastic handles with the blade in, then set it and push along the glass, change the angle to find the easiest and most seamless removal. it should come off in one long strip with little effort.

    Once its off source some black/blue vinyl from a signage company to stick on the back.much easier than paint.

    Blade, box cutter.

    Do it where you can vacuum up the mess you get.
