arcylic is light weight and durable but its scrathes very easily ,must be careful when cleaning it...with glass its heavy and it can crack,silicone seems get old and leaks happened.

The new silicone is good. I have heard from lots of people that they had the same glass tank for 15 years. I had a tank from the late 60's (Inherited) and the tank was leak free. I broke it in the 90's so it was around 30 years old.
I have heard acrylic will yellow over time. Plus i havent seen a acrylic over 10 years to compare it to the glass. Probably because they haven't made it that long. Too much hastle and money in my opinion. I wouldn't trade my glass tanks.
