I had a 20 gall acrylic tropical setup about 8 years ago. I scratched the front of the tank when adding gravel and it looked horrible (the scratch kept getting algae inside it and was a pain to clean)
All my other tanks have been glass which I personally prefer. Just be careful when adding rock etc. if you decide to go with the acrylic.
55 Gall glass. 30-40lb LR
, CPR Bakpak 2R skimmer, Eheim 2215 canister, 2 x MJ1200 PHs for flow. 2 NO
Marine White tubes, fine layer of Arganite for substrate. Just switched to RO
