    Default Waxin that glass

    I had some turtle wax laying around so I decided to bust out some "wax on, wax off" Moves on my aquarium.

    Fwiw It actually seemed to help with finger prints, drips, cleaning, and the magnafloat glided nicely across.

    Has anyone else ever waxed your display tanks front glass?

    No loss of clarity at all...I let it dry and haze up, then buffed it off with a soft micro fiber towel.

    I'll check the exact kind but it's just regular old tub of turtle wax.
