  • Removes scratches from acrylic Aquariums.
  • Crystal pad, the sanding material in this kit, has been used to polish plastic surfaces for over 20 years in the aircraft industry. The abrasive crystals are cushioned within a thin soft resilient material. This cushion allows the large abrasive crystals to recede into the soft material creating an even cutting plane.
  • Can be used wet or dry.
  • Removes scratches even under water!
  • Includes 8 different progressive grades of crystal pads, sanding block, 3/4 oz. bottle of final polish liquid abrasive with anti-static agent and flannel cloth.
  • Economical to use. Outlasts common abrasives up to 7 times in dry applications, and up to 15 times with wet applications.
  • Restores your acrylic aquarium to its original new luster!

Ruined Tank Waste Time Money

I bought this based on the positive reviews. I spent hours sanding and it did nothing but haze and ruin the acrylic surface. Now I'm going to try novus which seemed to work better based on youtube videos.

Scratch remover

I have had my 250 gallon acrylic tank for over 3 years and had a bunch of pesky scratches on the tank bottom from cleaning. When I finally scratched the middle of the tank in plane view did I decide I needed to give this product a try. I was a little nervous about the process since I could not remove the water or all of my fish and coral. However, the pads are really fine. They take off a small layer only. I have been using the 3200 and 4000 pads. Whatever is being sanded down has not affected my fish or corals. I have not worked vigorously on the scratches in fear to leave too much residue that would harm the fish, but I have noticed an improvement in appearance. I figure to spend 5-10 minutes every week on the scratches while I'm doing my weekly maintenance cleaning on the tank until all of the scratches are gone. I would recommend this product for those that need to fix some scratches on their tank while it's still full of livestock.

Not as simple as advertized

Not as simple as advertized. I don't know where all these positive reviews are coming from. I will give the manufacture the benefit of the doubt. It left a haze on a test spot that I could not get to go away. Tried twice. I will assume that in the hands of an experienced person this may work. I found it hard to tell when to go from one grit to the next. There is now a haze on my lid that will not go away.

Yay

Totally works!! It's been a week and fish are great. Was worried about them but worked under water. Didn't use polisher liquid of course. Just make sure you do every step without skipping. I skipped and had to go back which took a long time.

Great Product

Wow! This works even better than claimed! For me it worked best with a magnetic algae cleaner with a decent amount of patience. Follow the instructions and you can't go wrong! Work each grade of sandpaper longer than you think you should, as instructed; and by the time you get to the finest grade your acrylic tank will look beter than new.

Awsome!!

Great product for removing scratches from acrylic Tanks. Had several small scratches from sand on cleaning pad. They were quickly and easily removed. I did not have to remove fish and there has been no affect on corals in my tank. A little expensive but it works great.

It works!

Like so many others here, a piece of rock got caught in my mag float and it created a footlong scratch on the interior of my display tank. Based on the reviews here on this product, I decided to try it out. What appealed to me the most about this product is that you don't have to empty out your display tank to use it. I used the sander underwater and in about a half hour, the scratch was gone. The instructions are easy to follow! Use with confidence!

Gerry good results

Results were outstanding. I used a hammerhead magnet cleaner with a 100 micron felt pad between the sand paper and felt. I used two pro scraper blades on either side of magnet and held in place by rubber bands, this provided good clamping force to hold the sandpaper in place. It took me 4 hours to repair a 300 gallon trapezoidal tank. The curved edges were a challenge. An improvement on the product would be to include a 1000 grit and make the grot pads wider.

It worked

So, my buddies wife came over and started dragging my magnet cleaner around my tank. There must have been some sand on there or something because it scratched the heck out of my tank. Talk about being bummed... I was a little nervous to try this kit but pleasantly surprised how well it worked. I couldn't get the rubber bands to work right so I just stuck my arm in and took my time (go fast and you'll lose half your tank water). Definitely happy with the results.
