If you're really concerned throw in some carbon and an air stone to move the water around overnight and you should be good. Nail polish remover is usually acetone so that will pretty much evaporate on its own, but the scented stuff probably has some other stuff in there.

Strange as it may sound (Catie Curtis?) the Windex is the most dangerous thing you used, residue-wise. :gw
Decent rinse/wipe-down with a paper towel and preferably distilled, water. Air dry.
nipat;56746 said:Great. I thought I needed to use something stronger like bleach.
At first I thought it was, from the most dangerous to the least; naphtha, Windex,
nail polish removers. Since I was not sure about naphtha residue.
OK, I will clean it with vinegar and water and let it dry.
Thanks, both of you.

If you have alage problems get a mag-o-float. I think your on the right track. Are you the person that was wondering if you should put you betta in a new uncycled tank?? Do you have gravel or and places for the betta to hide?
