I would imagine any amount of nail polish remover to leave melt scars on the tank.
I once put acetone on a piece of paper and rubbed a stain on a capet the carpet melted, its pretty caustic stuff..
well the water was emptied out of the bowl right after it happened, and i cleaned and scrubbed it good.. didnt see any grease on the top of the water or anything slimy.. i called my local fish store where i always go and they said the tank should be fine but not the decor :) but yea ur prob right with the dense thing.. thats a good observation
