Re: [APD] Acrylic scratches

Really very about your acrylic experience.
Hope you can salvage the $s somehow.

Meanwhile I have a outdoor glass tank, which has developed sort of
percipitates on  inside,
( It may be some salt getting deposited- as the boring water
which I use is salty).
These precipitates cannot be removed by scratch pads, 
whatever elbow grease I use.

Is there any other method for glass to remove hard precipitates?
