    Hi all,

    I just received a used 75 gal. SeaClear acrylic tank and there are some scratches on the surface on the inside and outside. Anyone know a product or method to buff these out?

    Thanks!

    Go to an aircraft supply or plastic supply place and get the stuff they use on cockpit windows that are acrylic. That is what I used and the scratches are gone.

    Make sure you buy the application cloth that is specially made for it's use. Total cost about $10.00. What you are looking for is called Novus Fine Scratch Remover.
    I use the #2 bottle.
