    Hi guys

    So I bought a second hand 5ft tank with a cabinet and everything for rather cheap. The problem is that there is a lot of fine scratches on the glass. Not very deep, I ran my nail on it and it doesn't catch.
    Is there any advise or things I can try to make it look better, or alternatively, is there any company that can do this for me?

    Thanks in advance.

    I use a dedicated glass polish for minor scratches- available at most hardwares and works well.

    Thanks, will go and purchase that. Do you polish by hand or do you use a drill or a polisher machine?

    Only by hand thus far, but I suppose I could have used my dremel - really depends on area size and depth of scratches I guess.
    For light scratches it didn't take too much time at all. Initially bought it for polishing watch faces.
