If its a Pistol or Tiger Shrimp, your safe. The Pistol Shrimp can make an aweful loud bang.
You can't get rid of the scratches inside the tank now. You have had buffed them out prior to adding water.

It's not fully full yet, the scratches are not submerged. How do I buff them??

Can your fingernail catch them? I had a 135 with scratches that I brought to a glass shop. They said that if my fingernail can catch them, they cannot be ground out without distorting the glass.

Yea, my fingernail catches them :/ I'm hoping once the scratches are submerged you wont be able to see them. On the bright side, I've seen at least 3 types of teeny tiny creatures. Not sure if they're pods, baby shrimp, or what but I'm sure they will be eaten when the first fish come lol. I'm decently happy with the aquascape. For some reason I feel like there's too much rock. Once it clears up I'll take a pic to see what you guys think :)

For the scartches you could just try and make them less noticable with that or turn the tank around.

The tank is reef ready, it's only got one back and one front lol. I'm hoping they wont be noticeable once cleaned and the tank filled.

Those scratches won't be seen once its filled. They will however be seen when algae fills them in. I get that problem.

I had that problem in my two gallon betta tank. Paper towels and tooth brushes are your friend.
