Scratched tank help

I was cleaning my tank with a magnetic pads and I picked up a rock which scratched the inside if my tank. Is there a way to get rid of these scratches? I really dont want to empty my tank to do so.

Is it glass or acrylic. Acrylic scratches are a lot easier to fix then glass.

Maybe somebodt else can chime in on the topic cuz I don't know how to fix glass. If it was acrylic they have kits for fixing the scratch. But with glass I'm not sure

Glass is possible to fix but it needs to be a very very shallow scratch in my experience because it is pretty difficult to get back to new. You need to take your tank below the scratch. And buffer it down put stuff in it. Let it dry. Buffer again and so on. Kinda like acrylic. It's a long process
