Acrylic advice

Recommended Posts

I have recently scored a 60 gallon TruVu acrylic frag tank and I have no idea how to take care of acrylic, lol. There are no scratches in it (nothing that comes close to catching a finger nail or can be felt), just a few scuffs and a couple spots where it looks like it may have come in contact with some sort of chemical and dripped down. How can I buff out the scuffs and what looks to be etching?

do you have a hand held polisher? Thats what i used on an old acrylic tank i had. Just some super minor compound at a lowish speed. If you dont and your near oregon city you can borrow my snap on one. Its air driven so youd need a compressor.

Very generous of you and very much appreciated. What size compressor would you recommend? I understand the bigger the better, but what size do you think I could get away with.
