    Hello everyone. Im sure this has happened to everyone at some point, and it can be a mental annoyance even if they are only slightly visible while others are just to "visible". But how would one go about removing scratches on the tank glass?

    Ok, in the UK you can buy a stone polishing kit for children (No, i have no idea why children would want shiny stones, but there we go) the paste you get with this is a very good polishing agent, it is damned hard work, but worth it in the end, fialing that toothpaste will also remove small scratches, but you might want to practice on a spare bit of glass before you go near your tank.

    Was told over the weekend you get a "blush" that you can use to polish glass. Just be careful what you use inside the tank. Brasso also works, but I would not use it inside the tank.
