I'm trying to decide on glass or acrylic for when I upgrade to a 5 gallon tank.
My current tank is a 2.5 gallon glass. In the past I always had acrylic. I'm kind of worried about breaking the glass tank. I'm also not sure I like the look of the seems. Still, I know glass is clearer and not nearly so easily scratched and scuffed up.
Which do you prefer, glass or acrylic? Why?
I'd like to see some thoughts on this before I make my final decision.
id rather have a scratched tank than a broken tank, so i have accepted it and i can live with a scratched acrylic lol. id go acrylic just to be safer.... its a mess should anything ever happen. always acrylic for anything under 5g tbh.
Always go with glass. Acrylic scratches too much. Then you will have to buy a scratch remover and remove the scratches. If you want to remove scratches on the inside you have to empty out the tank. Also, glass does not break THAT easily. It's only if you drop it or something.
