    yes there is but you need to be careful. the process is actually removing small layers of acrylic and overtime will cause the tank to weaken too much...

    In fact, Staying away from it is the only way you're guaranteed not to learn anything more about it.

    Check it out, You are not obligated to buy it because you looked at it.
    Exactly the point I was getting at, just not so eloquently...or......to the point.or.....lol

    I would ask him the lowest price he could sell it for. Not much point in going to look at it if he will settle for nothing less than $500 that he can easily get.

    it is an option tho. stay away from the heat method for scratch removal if you are unsure of your skills. that method is a good one if you can control a blow torch. it wont thin the acrylic but it can warp it or burn it.

    He is moving out of his current business and has no room for it in his new location (as he says) and is paying to store it. I asked him what he wanted for it but he said "well, if you have a tank then you know how expensive they are, but I'm in a pinch and really need to get rid of it..." and didn't say what he wanted. I'm willing to wait for a killer deal, so while he could easily get $500.00 for it I've been waiting for something in the neighborhood of $200.00. If it's amazing and has EVERYTHING I need maybe a bit more.
    It's worth it to me to show up with my max and offer him $150.00.

    Personally I would only pop on this for $150 to $200. A used scratched acrylic tank is just that. A pro buff job is going to be brutally expensive $500 to $800 to have a guy run the proper abrasives on it and not cause optical points in the surface. I've seen tanks buffed by monkey boy with a buffer talent and looking into them actually makes you dizzy because of all of the Hi low on the acrylic surface. His other gear would have to be fairly pristine for me to go over that $200 mark much. That tank does look to be fairly thin, if it's not really well cross braced I would pass.

    Another way of removing scratches: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=QnIwVp2a7F8

    Also see how long it's been left out in the Sun. UV rays can damage acrylic.

    When you say well cross braced how many cross braces (or how thick/dense) should there be? And just to make sure I understand, you're talking about acrylic material that spans the width of the tank across the top? (I know it sounds stupid to ask, but just making sure)

    If it's not well cross braced how thick do you think I should be looking for this acrylic to be to be sturdy enough?
