moving mts from one tank to another.

has anyone tried this? will it be impossible/messy? i ask because i think i need to replace my 29 gallon tank very very soon, and just switched to mts about a month ago...

hre is a pic of my concern for replacing the tank. i have had it for 4 years or so...

notice the scratches/cracks. there are on the surface of the inside of the glass. there are more than these, this is just a pic of them i had on hand already.

I've had small scratches on a few areas of my tank and never encountered an issue. If they are deep then I would worry.

While I don't have a answer for the MTS question, the big question for the glass would be is it tempered? If it isn't tempered glass then the scratches aren't a huge deal. If it is tempered then it would mater how deep they are.
