I don't keep mine in direct sunlight. I would advise inspecting them after each cleaning, to make sure there is no problem.

'Tis probably why you may not have had problems with yours yet Dramaqueen. =]
We had several in our marine science class, but being a class room an all, it had large windows along the one wall which helped provide light in the room (the room was really dim otherwise). And it didn't take but about half a school year before the first one cracked... good thing we had linoleum floors.

lol What a mess that probably was! I've had one fish in an acrylic container for almost 2 tyears. I always check mine when I clean to make sure there iare no cracks. But, yeah, if they are going to be in sunlight its probably not a good idea to have acrylic.

Hi was reading about the acrylic cracking. We just ordered one of those eclipse kits and they are acrylic. I read reviews where people said that they scratch easily but do they crack over time too? Do you have any opinion about them? You can get them reasonably thru Walmart w/the filter/lights (no heater though) thanks

I breed in kritter keepers!

I use the small world filter and I recommedn it :) The hydor is a big NO, they can cook your fish if your not careful, go with a 25 watt submersible heater.

I have a 4 gallon hex that was given to me. Its plastic and has some scratches on it but hey, it was free so I'm not complaining too much. lol I have a heater in it, too but if you get plastic just check every once in awhile to make sure its ok.
