Does anyone know of anyway to remove scratches from an empty glass tank????
Sandpaper scares me, but I'm sure I could hide a scratch with sandpaper no problem.....with many many more scratches :lol:afoctober2 said:I"ve removed scratches from copper computer heatsinks with wet sandpaper usually starting at 800 grit going to 1500 or 2000grit. I have no idea how that would work on glass though. I think i've read about someone doing that to glass but i imagine its a timely process and depends on depth of scratch.
Hopefully someone might have input on this
Cerium oxide has replaced rouge as the best way to buff out haze and fine scratches on glass. Whether it's an aquarium, telescope lens, or auto windshield, these brands have proven track records.BenHugs said:Sandpaper scares me, but I'm sure I could hide a scratch with sandpaper no problem.....with many many more scratches :lol:
I was hoping for some kind of buffing compound or something else that has been proven
I had thought about that, seemed like a smart place to start However, the flexibility of moving my fish out of the tank for an extended period of time isn't an option (for now). I was looking for a DIY project to remove a scratch or two. I'm wondering if clear finger nail polish would "fill" the scratch I have? I could live with the scratch, it's maybe two inches long, but if I could reduce or remove it fairly easy, that'd be awesome. Has anyone ever used clear finger nail polish to fill in a glass scratch?Imaconvict said:Have you tried a glass/window shop to see what they suggest, afterall they work with the stuff on a daily basis.
