Scratches on Glass

Just wondering what is the best way to eliminate/minimize scrathes on the inside of a operating glass tank. I have some scrathes on my tank from the sand substrate so I dont think they are deep. TFTH

You cannot remove them from a running tank, and if you can feel the scratches they cannot be removed.

Make sure you have the right mag cleaner for your tank too. There are some for acrylic and some for glass tanks. Nothing worse than scratches on a DP tank.
