we use a scouring pad when the magnetic scrubber doesnt get it off, just make sure you dont use any chemical cleaners

1/2 bottle of domestics

domestics???

I'd try one of those scrubby green things with cream cleaner, making sure you rinse it off well before putting fish in there obviously!

You could try the same on the lid.

I'm thinking he meant domestos :?

If it was in a hard water area, it could be limescale so use viakal or similar. I use a cleaning cloth (and gloves to protect your hands) and gentle rub over marks. leave for a few mins and wash off. Repeat as necessary. As for the lid, it could be bacteria or mould growth. try a strong hot bleach solution and leave to soak - bear in mind it may discolour.

If you use any kind of domestic cleaner, your fish will die.
Use a clean cloth, water and elbow grease.
