My personal preference, glass is better for scratch resistance BUT acrylic is clearer and much lighter. (Because of the weight, the larger the tank, the more I lean towards acrylic).

I have had both, I now have acrylic. I wish I had glass. The tank scratches way to easy.

Acrylic, IMO wins in the pros and cons, but I will not own another acrylic tank. It's the scratching thing
