Glass or Acrylic? 30 gallons and up

I want to set up another planted tank in my living room and I am toying with the idea of getting a 30 gallon SeaClear tank. Does anyone have any opinions on these acrylic tanks? Not sure if I want to go with acrylic or stick with glass. My plan is to do a betta sorority or possibly a community tank with a male betta.

I don't have any experience with larger acrylic tanks, so if it were me I would Google something like SeaClear Review. Just might help. Good luck! :)

Oooh, Ive seen (and oogled) over these before..My LFS had one and it was striking.
I personally like acrylic quite a bit, because Im always worrying over leaks and the like. There's just something scary about a large volume of water encapsulated in glass, held together by....well, essentially glue! Hah!
You could go nuts aquascaping a tank that big. Im so jealous! <3

I don't mind acrylic tanks but the one thing keeping me off them is that they get damaged or scratched so easily. I hAd an acrylic tank but even wiping algae off the inside left marks and the gravel shreded the bottom

If you use a scrubber made for acrylic, you won't have the scratching problem. At least that has been my experience!
