    Question Removing Paint?

    (I hope this is the correct place to post this)
    I recently bought a 40 Breeder from someone who stopped breeding cichlids. It's meant as an upgrade for my 3 year old male ball python. I'm sure he'll be excited once it's ready for him, as he lives in a 20 long right now.
    But, in lies the problem. The person I bought it from used it as a fish tank, so it already needs cleaned. Not a big deal. BUT she painted the back of it this bright neon highlighter blue color. (not even exaggerating) Which I do not think Loki would appreciate. So what is the safest way to get it off without scratching it all up?
    Also side question: Is he going to have to get resettled, like leave him alone for a week or so? I plan on using the same decor. Maybe buy a couple more things, depending on his reaction to more space.

    You may be able to use a razor scrapper to get the paint off. Itís the same thing auto shops use to get the decal off your windshield, or you can use them to get paint off of window panes when you arenít neat about painting the trim. As long as you keep it flat to the glass, not pushing one corner harder than the other, you shouldnít have scratches.
