[APD] Anyone Have Experience With Acrylic Tanks???
I just picked up my first acrylic tank today and I am already regretting
the decision to go acrylic. I was so happy to see the custom tank when I
picked it up. I gave it a cursory inspection and everything looked
great. I was so happy to finally see the result. I brought it home and
placed it where I plan to locate the tank. Looks great. Fits even better
than I thought it would....
Then the sun got lower in the sky and a beam came in through the window
and hit the tank. To my absolute horror, the entire 6 feet of the front
of the tank is now covered in spider web scratches. It looks like
someone sanded the tank with really fine sandpaper. It actually made me
sick to see it. Especially thinking that I just threw away the better
part of a thousand dollars for this, and spent the last two hours
driving over 50 miles away to pick it up.
Is this normal for acrylic tanks when they are new? This is not
acceptable. It's not like a few tiny scratches. It literally looks like
the tank was sanded with a 2000-grit sandpaper.
