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.

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.
Glass=plus
Plastic=minus :wink:

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.
