    Need help with scratched acrylic tank

    Post by Crusty Old Shellback on Mon Sep 09, 2013 9:56 am

    OK guys I need some serious help. As most of you know, my tank is now 10 years old and severly scratched. So I need to do something. Eitehr get it fixed or go more drastic and sell it all.

    So Option one is to get it buffed out. I know I'll have to empty out the tank and will make arraingments for that when the time comes. But the big question is WHO? is a resonabley priced company/person who will come to my house and buff it out to look like new? Both inside and out?

    If I can't get it done, then I'm thinking of selling the whole thing and downsizing to say a 150 for a while. Anybody got some ideas? Or want to buy my setup?

    I got a quote on inside and outside tank polish, the guy wanted $400.00. A new tank could be
    built for less.
