The tank seems to be coming along nicely. the background look good.
Do as I say. Not as I do.

That sailfin looks good.
I'm looking forward to seeing the plumbing all hooked up and running
If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Today I got around to doing the acrylic polish test. I started by taking a portion of the back of the tank that was a bit scratched up, and taking a few tools to it to give it a few more scratches.
I have an acrylic polishing kit that I used on my 75 gallon tank. I polished that tank by hand which took a lot of time and effort, so I was not looking forward to repeating the process on this much larger tank. I picked up an orbital waxer/polisher to help out with that, but I've never used it before... hence the desire to test.
It went very well. I was only testing a small area but it took a fraction of the time and effect that hand polishing did. Here's the after picture:
Looks like I removed all the scratches that were there, but I did somehow manage to add one new small scratch (below and to the right of the camera flash). I remember from the first time I did this it comes down to a tradeoff: How long are you willing to keep working at getting every last little scratch out versus how long before you decide that you've put enough effort into it and it's good enough as is.
Next, I need to flip the tank back over and then block out enough time to polish the front. Hopefully I'll have time to do that next weekend.

Seems to have worked pretty flawlessly, despite that small scratch. Great job Brhino and good to know that method works well for acrylic tanks. =]
