There are more benefits in having an acrylic tank. Its lighter, you can easliy switch to saltwater, its higher in demand, would have a better selling value than glass and more durable. Glass is too heavy, seals will eat away during time, and would you ever rely on putting a huge rhom (or any fish) that would attack glass and not worry??

alycrlic beats glass overall but there are things i dont like about it. THey sratch and do not show asw ell as glass. I dont know if you guys have noticed but water seems to be more clear and things tend to look better in glass tanks than anything else. IMP glass is a better show tank but i you are thinkin about getting tank buster then plexi and acrylic is the way to go.
