Acrylic tanks are recommended for that size tank. And thicker glass bottoms for the larger tanks. But I believe the 220g and larger are thick enough not to break. Not entirely sure on that one, yet.

No. You can put him in an Acrylic tank. Those are alot tougher for them to break.

There is a tiny shrimp in there. It's kind of brownish grey and slightly over an inch long...

What is the difference between acrylis and glass? Acrylic scatches more easily, but is stronger, and glass is weaker but doesn't scratch much. Too bad they cant combine the 2.
What do you prefer reef? I have only had glass and plastic.

Mantis shrimp, Odontodactylus scyallarus

I prefer Starphire Glass over them all.
Normal Glass has a green hue to it, I don't care for that, but thats what you get with it.
Acrylic, yoiu have to worry about how many years down the road before you have to tear the tank down to buff out the scratches.
Starphire Glass, is low iron glass, and its much clearer than normal glass, it doesn't have that green hue to it. The stuff may be heavieer than acrylic, but you don't have to worry about taking it down to buff out scratches.
