Hi all,

So I noticed I was getting some scratches on my 50 gallon's glass. I was wondering how I could go about fixing these scratches.

Thanks

OK, the best thing to use is to polish the scratches out with a product called Cerium Oxide, it's what jewelers use to polish diamonds & you can buy it online, it's supposed to be inert & low to moderately toxic to fish & inverts but I wouldn't trust using it with fish in the tank so you'd need to empty the tank to do it & I believe the success would depend on the depth of the scratch. Toothpaste is also used to remove scratches that aren't too deep.

I have a scratch at the bottom of my 90g tank. It sucks but I really ignore it and eventually you forget about it.

There’s always risk to using a compound to fill it. It could be inert but you won’t know until you actually try it.
