acrylic can scratch easy but can come in cool shapes and sizes. I have an 8 gallon acrylic that is a hex.
acrylic can warp over time but is lighter weight tank than glass.
The scratch thing can be really bad if you get a scratch you might not get rid of it. You mainly haved to be careful when cleaning it.
