I am very concerned. I just noticed that on the bottom of my tank, there seem to be a few scratches. They aren't deep or anything, but you can feel them a little bit. When I put my finger near the scratch water kind of condenses a tiny bit (there is a thin layer of water in the tank). What should I do? Does anyone else have anything like this? :-(

I believe that I can feel the largest scratch (really not that big) on the outside. It is a micro scratch though. It only condenses when I put my finger super super close to it. I am probably overanalyzing it, but just want to be safe.

Yeah, it is probably just a scratch. I can feel it, but it doesn't leak or anything.


Thanks!

No kidding...it's good to be overly cautious when talking about 1,000 pounds of water going into that tank.

My LR just came in! Do I acclimate it? If so, how?
