I'm of that opinion also, and that's exactly what I plan on doing. It 
was already scratched the instant I took off the plastic wrapping. The 
polishing didn't make it better or worse, and that's the God's honest 
truth so I don't feel the need to complicate things by explaining it all 
to them.

It may be that acrylic tanks look like this, or maybe not. I have never 
noticed it on another tank though. If they cannot or will not fix it, 
I'll just get a glass tank. Who makes glass tanks with corner overflows?
