Keeping the Humphead Glassfish in the Aquarium - Petcha

At the end of the day, acrylic is a type of plastic. Even if you take as many precautions as possible using so called "acrylic friendly" scrapers and scrubbers, all it takes is one mishap of someone getting a grain of gravel or sand stuck in your algae scraper or cleaning pad and you have big nasty blemishes all over your expensive acrylic aquarium. Glass aquariums can scratch as well; however it has a resistance to scratching many, many times greater than acrylic aquariums. Over the long haul the acrylic aquariums will look old and beat up at a much greater rate than glass aquariums. Unlike a reptile cage where you can swap out the acrylic panels over time if they do get scratched up, there is no practical way to fix a severely scratched acrylic aquarium. As it is true that you can buff acrylic scratches, how practical is it to drain a fully established tank, introduce a series of chemicals/buffing compounds that can be dangerous to your fish? It is also extremely difficult to buff scratches out of acrylic and bring it back to its original clarity, particularly on the inside of a large, custom established tank.
