Glass or acrylic for in wall tank

Daniel and I are (ok, daniel is) building a wall to house a 110 gallon tank. We both think glass is the way to go, just wanted to double check with you guys! As of right now, we are planning for it to be a FOWLR tank

Id probably go with glass just because it is stronger and doesnt scratch as easy. It looks like it is going in a high traffic area.

How come I keep missing these threads? 8O

I have to agree with Oscarbreeder. Since this is an in-wall construction, the single benefit of having a lighter weight acrylic tank has been rendered moot.
