Oh Oh I think I see a scratch - j/k Looks nice GL w/build I'll be following along. At least with acrylic you can buff out the scratches if any develop.

Just remember...NEVER leave the magnet on the tank after you're done ...EVERY visitor loves to 'help' you and will try the magnet, and that's where the first scratch will come from!
Get the acrylic sleeve from Champion Lighting that will greatly reduce the chances of sand scratching the tank.

It is easy to remove if you scratch it much easier than removing glass scratches.
