Glass tank

Well today as I was cleaning my tank I notice some hair scratches on one side. Am very anal on keeping my tanks with out any scratches. I use floating magnets and I keep it about 1 1/2 away from the sand so sand debris get to it.. Is it normal that glass tanks are alway gonna get scratches one way or another?? Or has any one seen a older glass tank perfect with out any scratches??

I'm the same way. I use the floating magnet as well. I use the one Aqueon and use the insert for acrylic. I don't like that Velcro hitting the glass. I've seen old tanks without any scratches, I've been told by those people that they use the pads. You know the cleaning kit?

I use both...
