We won't be able to attend the next meeting dealing with such things. So PLEASE, someone take good notes - I'll need some help when I return.

Not much you can do

Unless things have changed, a scratch in a glass tank is permanent. It's much harder to scratch glass, but when it happens, that's about it.

Actually not so anymore appearently Reed. Paul H (fragman) has just gotten a glass scratch repair kit and was going to give it a go on his old cube tank. I will see if he can post on the results.

I am anxiously awaiting the results. That would be great news. Thanks for setting me straight Mike.

yea I didnt know about it either until Paul told me he had it on order. We will see how it looks. I know his tank was like 20 plus years old and had a ton of scratches on it.

Guys I'm not quit ready to give you a report on the success or failure of this process. I began yesterday and logged 5 hours of polishing to the 30inch cube. Man is it harder than plexiglass. Oh my aching muscles. Anyway I have another fine polishing compound to go before I'll know how it worked. The tru test will be when I put water in it again. Hopefully this week end?
