Scrubbed the crap out of the tank and took most of the algae off... There's a few coralline algae in there that I just can't take off... I don't have an acrylic safe scrubber (if they make any) so Im working with what I got. I found a lot of scratches in the front of the tank. just bums me out a bit. Especially after polishing the front off. Will see how it goes. My brother said I could use a buffer to help buff the scratches out. If sooo... Can you do the inside? This dude... Really scratched it most likely on scrubbing it or doing water changes.

Is washing the sand more of a manly duty? Bc I'm having a hard time trying to do it... Especially after seeing worms crawling it. That's just gross! I'm not an insect person.... Blah!!!

Sand can be frustrating at times, but it looks most natural!

And I understand what it's like to buy stuff off Craigslist and have it turn out not as advertised or expected! But your doing the right thing on making the best out of what you have! this is gonna be a nice tank

Yes!!! I had black gravel in my freshwater tank and it really made everything pop. Love to see things in a saltwater tank pop. But I'm not sure how that would work or if it would just generally be a bad idea. Not entirely sure but I'm leaning towards the black sand.
