Algae cleaning pads and wall cleaning utensils which are marketed to be for acrylic will produce very, very minor scratches which over a period of even a year become noticeable.

I don't have any scratches inside. I also don't have algae that I need to scrub off though.

One thing to mention about the acrylic- although the view is great without the caulk lines, mine is a bowed front and there is some distortion at certain angles.

Overall I do like the acrylic. But I would get a glass one if I had the space for a large one.


Pardon the pun, but I'm hooked!

I love mine to. I got the bowfront 36 gallon. Not much different from the 46 gallon in inches. Plus cheaper. I just now need to get my new hood and the under gravel filter and last of all plants. Then I can put fish into it. Its my first aquarium so shatter proof is a good thing lol.
