Hello everyone, I just bought a used 90 gallon tank for pretty cheap, But the glass is all scratched up from what looks like an algae scraper. Has anyone ever removed them, And if so how?

I have read that if its glass you are hosed, if its acrylic there is a scratch/patch kit but you will have to drain it.... My scratch strategy is use plants or structure to draw the eye away.

Yeah, mine got scratched up from the metal scraper. Use the plastic one. For really tough green spotted algae, use a razor.

I have been doing some research and came across Cerium Oxide, Going to give that a shot, I will take before and after photos to let you guys know how it turns out.
