    minerals spirits

    I used mineral spirits to clean my hands from the black glue that was holding the aquarium brace .Is it safe to wipe off the aquarium glass with mineral spirits if make sure I clean it off good after words

    Yes, although I would suggest you clean the glass with a good quality dish soap (like Dawn) and rinse WELL after using most solvents like mineral spirits just to make sure as I have seen mineral spirts take a long time to fully evaporate, then prior to reassembly I would use something more organic like acetone or denatured alcohol as a final cleaning as even if they don't fully evaporate trace amounts of acetone and denatured alcohol won't cause any harm, plus both evaporate in short so no delays waiting...
