Scratched Glass

Bought Coralife Lunar Lights and noticed scratches on the inside of my glass aquarium... Does anyone know of a way to remove these scratches? Thank You

I think there is some kind of glass scratch remover that is used for lenses for glasses but I'm not sure if it will work or if its safe.

Have you tried rubbing it from inside? Keep the magnet cleaner clean as well. Once gook gets under the cleaner it just smudges.

I have a nice scratch in mine I can feel it with my finger nail from the inside. I don't know if I did it with the mag float or while scraping corraline.

I was afraid of that. I have lots of scratches on the inside of the glass. Yes, I'm certain they are scratches.

Still hoping someone has a way to remove the scratches on the inside if the tank... BTW (Gatorfreak), mine came by the way of my Mag Float (sand was in between)

My scratches are from the mag float as well. They should really put a warning on it about getting sand in between.

I agree about the "Warning"; Had I known, I would have considered other means for cleaning the inside of the aquarium.
