I tried it once with a power buffer and the compounds sold for the purpose, I gave up after a few hours didn't put a dent in the scratches.

How bad is it? My 54 corner came with scratches too. Really only visible when algae grows.

More corals than gallons
Yeah never had much luck polishing glass (though have heard a few success stories), have had great luck getting scratches out of acrylic though.

It is a lot of hard work and a lot of time to buff out glass.
