Glass vs Plastic Aquariums? Plus and Minus
Not sure which is best for Reef Tank. Any suggestions?[/b]
I would go with glass. People seem to have problems with plastic. I think glass is more durable.
Plastic tanks are better off for breeding and quarantine purposes.
They scratch too easily and let alone planning live rocks and corals.
Go with the glass tanks. Not worth keeping plastic ones.
Plus glass is aethestetically pleasing and looks a lot nicer than plastic, especially in a tank that is larger than like...5 gallons. Well, salt tanks at least.
I wonder who chose the plastic one.:?
With salties, you are mostly recommended to start with a 300 liters tank than below 200 liters. With plastic, what's the use of that with again, the corals and live rocks? Those things will of course, scratch the plastic material thus making the plastic tank more liable to go into disasters.
I'd rate both as ten.
lol That was me i ment to hit glass. srry :?
I agree with blue with I scratching and if you have corals they need stronger light as MH or T5's. Me pesonally I wouldn't trust MH's with plastic tanks anyway beause the MH's get so hot.
Thanks a lot.... that makes my decision a lot easier
