Re: Acrylic Tank Questions
<snip>> 1. It has some scratches. Anyone ever repair these successfully?
There are very fine sandpapers, on the order of 1200-1600 grit made
specifically for polishing the scratches out of glass. This should do the
job nicely. Check at the local glass shop for a lead. They may also have
better ideas about repairing plexi scratches.

Close enough. Less than half a gallon short.

Their transport strength and reduced risk of fracturing is supposed to be
their biggest advantage. Just make sure it is sitting flat and doesn't have
a stone or tirejack or something caught under it.
