FW test. Sigh. No it's not cloudy or hot water, that is spray paint on the front. Bloody hell.

Also, is it my kit or everyones too, the light just doesn't stay perfectly perpendicular. It sloooowly bends down. I'm afraid to tighten it too much.

did somebody say chestnut? I'm interested.

 

and there is no way to get it off?

 

I'm all ears, I've got even Mike from Micro reefs looking it up. I'm afraid to use solvent in case it mars the surface of this acrylic but no way to tell unless I do a test right?

You can use this to remove scratches after you sand the paint off but it's a lot of work.

it has everything to do with that.

 

Precisely.

 

Kat, why didn't you at least turn on a porch light when you spray-painted it?

Oh guys do things just as stupid. They just don't like to admit it and ask for help, haha.

 

Kat, sorry about the spray paint. I'm sure you'll figure out something to fix it.

Magic Eraser to remove the spray paint? Wont scratch either. Just a suggestion.

What is this precisely business. I don't have a porch light, it is not a porch, it is a high rise, with a patio. It was windy. I stopped after the first spray but the damage was done.

How men work- :P

 

1. How to lift a 90 gallon tank onto a table without asking for help

2. Protective gear. Yes, someone put a "Ladies" sign on my shop bathroom door. -_-

3. Painter's tape and cardboard to cover all areas not intended to be paint covered. This includes sealing the open top of the tank.

4. Use of spray paint that bonds to glass, is reef safe, and is not affected by salt water exposure.

5. Spray multiple very light coats a few minutes apart.

6. Fill with water.
