    Very hard to remove scratches from tempered glass. Nothing you could accomplish on your own. They sell brand new..unscratched..warranted tanks at Petco for a dollar a gallon. That's what I would do.

    The cost to polish glass far outweighs the cost of a new tank. A new tank is best. I'd try filling it with water first, some scratches are barely noticeable under water.

    I bought a brand new 29 gallon tank a few months ago from Petco...and AFTER I got it filled up and decorated...I noticed a scratch right in front. I still see it...cuz' I know it's there!!

    If it's a straight scratch, try sticking a stick-on thermometer to hide the scratch. It's way too expensive to buff out scratched glass.
