Okay, so I ended up getting this...

I ended up getting that 70g reef ready acrylic tank, I posted about earlier, It was a deal I could not refuse, $100, for it includign the tank, stand, canopy, top, and other misc stuff, the tank has some minor damage, and some small scratches, so I need some advice on plumbing, (no idea how), and scratch removal, it is acrylic, and I know there are scratch kits, But i was wondering if anyone has any home remidies for scratches? I ordered the bulk heads, they should be here tuesday, but after that I am so confused. Help is very much appreciated. Thanks

I've heard that scratches on acrylic are harder to remove than ones on glass, not sure why though. Maybe try a local fish store and see if they know anything, it might not be a DIY kinda thing. Or try a glass store?
Good luck and looking forward to pics!!

if your local acrylic shop qouted you to fix the support, im sure they are more than capable of buffing out the scratches if they can be buffed

Tank is cycled, up and running with a couple fish now. No filter for a few more hours though because my stupid rabbit chewed the cord and shorted it out, so I have to buy a new one.
