My fish tank has residue on it.It is not algae because there is no water in the tank. Does anyone know a safe effective liquid cleaner that will clean this up.I have a 72 bow front so its big, and I want to get those spots out.it was a freshwater set up before the tank was drained.please help thanks in advance.

What kind of residue is it? That makes a difference. What's the color, texture, thickness, etc. Is it all over, just in once place, thicker in other, etc. If it's just thin, white and a little coarse you can probably just wipe it off with your hand or a cloth and some hot water. If it won't quite come off use a scraper of some sort. Try to avoid using any chemical not intended for aquatic use. Always try using hot water and a good scrubbing first. If you don't have a scraper, a credit card works sometimes and won't scratch the glass.
