Its a guess so acrylic experts need to chime in here, but no I think that the chemicals in that stuff might be harmful to fish and coral, like I said just a guess. What are you planing on using as that may be helpful for a more accurate answer?
i think you can use wet sanding paper lower to higher # grit in the inside of the tank so i have heard
Possible....but the lightest sand paper I have used doesnt come close to the last 2 parts, grit wise, of the scatch remover paste I have used to remove scratches from acrylic. The paste, in the final step, or two, are much finer than any sand paper I have come across.
Or is that what you used on an acrylic tank to keep the surface clean?
The algae and or the Magnavore. This kit does both. It worked great on the finer but seeable scratches. The deeper ones I'm gonna have to use a larger grain paper. I haven't used the polisher yet, still got my hands all over the tank. It's looking pretty good
MizTanks, Were there any negative affects on your fish/corals from the acrylic particles.
I just purchased this stuff called Micro-Mesh. I am pretty sure it is the same stuff in the kit that you have. I am kind of reluctant to try it though. Something about using sanding cloth to remove scratches just doesn't sit well with me. You have to make scratches to remove scratches? Hmmm, has a familiar ring to it.
Sir Patrick "The paste, in the final step, or two, are much finer than any sand paper I have come across." This is exactly why I am reluctant to use the micro-mesh. There is no way to buff the wet side with paste. There is an 8000 grit micro-mesh that feels like leather but how well will that work? I guess I can try it out on the dry side and if it doesn't work I can use the paste to buff it out.
