First of all,does such a thing exist and if so,do they work?
My 55 gallon fish tank got some scratches on the outside...I think my son did it,he is 3 and likes to play cars on just about everything so its quit possible thats how it happened.

Maybe you should talk to someone at a glass repair shop. They may sell kits or set you on the right track.

Glass scratches can't be 'fixed;' that's the main draw of acrylic fish tanks.

Yeah, I don't think scratches can be removed, perhaps you can kind of rotate the tank so it's on the back, assuming it's a normal rectangular tank. While you're at it, it might be a good idea to do you're yearly maintanance on it, remove the fish and then remove the rest of the water and then rotate the tank around so the scratches are in the back of the tank...
Like Shayne says, acrylic tanks are fixable but glass really isn't. You could probably replace the panel but the costs are probably very prohibitive compared to a new tank.

A new glass plate, a razor blade, a tube of aquarium silicone, 48 hours and you can replace the scratched plate easily enough.

Actually,I had not even thought about reversing the tank.I am moving the first of next month so I will just live with the scratches until then...Only a few more weeks.I wonder how visible they will be though.I use a black background on my tanks.
Thanks guys!
