Can you clean a fish tank with Windex?

You can, but there is glass cleaner that is made specifically for aquariums, but Windex is fine aslong as none gets into the water.

Also, will Windex kill fish?

Windex will not kill fish when used on the outside of the tank, as long as you don’t spray the Windex into the tank. “Glass is highly permeable to certain substances. The windex simply diffuses through the pores in the glass, into the tank, and kills the fish.”

Secondly, can you use vinegar to clean your fish tank? You can use straight vinegar, but if you‘re not into vinegar smell, you‘ll probably want to use 1 part water to 1 part vinegar. You can also use vinegar to clean your fish tank equipment. Just put the dirty equipment in a bucket and fill enough to cover the equipment and let it sit for 24-48 hours.

Beside above, can I use glass cleaner on my fish tank?

Once the inside of the aquarium is cleaned, clean the hood, light, tank top, and outside glass. Regular glass cleaners contain ammonia, which is toxic to fish. It is strongly recommended that you use vinegar or a cleaner designated as aquarium safe, and make sure you rinse the surfaces with a clean damp cloth.
