Hello. I bought the waterbox marine x60.2 from my LFS. The sump was brand new. The tank however was on display, and there was some sand, and decoration in it. I didnt think of anything.

So i brought it home, and upon inspecting it, noticed a lot of hairline scratches, that i can feel all of them with my finger. And to make the matter worse, i dropped my wrench while working on the tank. Now there's more scratches.

Waterbox said, they cant do nothing about it in terms of replacing it. As i shouldve called it 24-48 hours after purchasing it. I didnt fill it yet from the fear of leaks.

I know waterbox tanks are 10mm, and very strong. But i truly need your opinion on this. Thank you

You probably won't notice much once filled with water, but if you paid me price I would be taking it back to the store that you bought it from and letting them deal with Waterbox

My 60Gallon Marineland freshwater tank I bought on sale at Petsmart and noticed a fairly deep scratch on the bottom of it upon bringing it home. I got it really cheap like $100 for the stand light and tank so I just decided to use silicone water sealant on the crack. I've never had any issues with it leaking and its been full of water for years now.
