Thank you @blaxsun for the QOTD idea!

Saltwater aquarium equipment gets dirty pretty quick. Beyond dirty though you get algae build up like coralline algae that needs to be removed regular and can be quite the bugger at removing! So what's the best way to clean it and still make sure it's safe? Let's do this thing!

Is it citric acid or something else?
Good question - probably citric acid AND something else. Although it doesn't include a direct answer to your question, here is a link to related thread that may provide additional info:
