If you have glass scratches there are two things you can use. One is 5 micron fiber polishing paper (Graybar) about 3 bucks a sheet, keep a steady flow of water over the area when polishing.

The second is Future floor wax (really not wax, more like clear acrylic paint) I use it in model aircraft building to fabricate cockpit windshields. First try it somewhere unseen to make sure there is no reaction. then use a q-tip rolling it in your fingers to brush any loose cotton fibers away.

With the 5 micron fiver polishing paper can you also polish out scratches form the inside? where do you get this paper from?

Any hardware store will carry it and yes, you can use it on the inside of the tank. I suggest maybe practicing on another piece of plastic to see what the outcome would be though, just in case. My 2 cents.

I bought this kit a while back and had read that it was reef safe and will not harm the fish. You might research it a little more, maybe find the actual product web site and drop them an email. I've been meaning to practice on a old piece of plastic, like my old sump, but forgot I had purchased it till now. Link is below:

I guess I should have wrote, for external use only. I have used the fiber paper many of times on my visor and wind screen.

no the fiber paper can be used on glass. I used it to terminate fiber sc type connectors
