    Is there anyway to buff out scratches on the inside of my tank glass?

    Bought an aquaone 620 earlier this year to get me back into marines. All's going well but I'm not happy with the tank. There's scratches on the glass, I don't know if I can run a skimmer on this tank either.

    Is it worth me trying to buff the scratches and figure out a skimmer option, or do I just try and find a new setup and swap over my LR, fish and coral?

    Thanks,
    Rhys

    Full pal, I've used it as a start tbh. I knew the glass was scratched before I set it up but couldn't afford any thing else. Just kicking myself now!

    No worries mate, I'll give it a few months and persuade the Mrs to let me get a new tank...

    Thanks for the reply pal!

    Always the way to go

    And then if you transfer everything over you could polish the scratches
    From memory you use cerium oxide powder
