Sorry for your lose.
I do have an acrylic tank and I love it. The seams are bonded together unlike a glass tank that uses silicon glue so a hermit crab would not be able to climb up the seams. It scratches pretty easy. That said, once you come to grips with that and are a little careful it's okay. Like I said underwater it's hard to see the scratches so if you see an empty acrylic tank It more then likely would look pretty bad. Most of the minor scratches disappear once the tank is filled. If you have children in the house this is the safest tank to have. It is very strong. My tank is bent around so there is only seams in the back and the top and bottom.

And I read it's a lot easier to take scratches out of acrylic than out of glass.

Ya it is, considering you can not take the scratches out of glass. You can buy filler stuff to fill in the scratches on acrylic tanks.

I thought they r gonna clean it and host the PVC, but they keep cleaning when the lights r on, and once I turn the lights off, they swim to the same corner every night.

maybe I should say interesting instead of weird~

found out another funny thing about my firefishes

the smallest one like the chase the two bigger one.
the two bigger one swim into a hole and the smaller will follow, then the bigger ones will swim out and find another hole. LOL then the smaller one will go search for the bigger ones and swim into the same hole.

over night the one who chasing others, its fins will get nipped off OoO
I was trying to remove it to the sump, but it just swim too fast LOL.

Poor thing~
