Plastic Aquarium for Turtles: Any Plastics Improvements in Past Few Years?
My turtle's glass tank is at the end of its life as one of the vertical joints is leaking. Its an uncommon size, 37 gallon tall, 30"(L) x 22" (H) x 12" (W) so not as easy to find new or used.
My understanding is has been that plastic tanks are a bad idea for keeping turtles due to their claws and inevitable network of scratches that wold develop.
Admittedly a very long shot, but I'm just checking in to see if anything has changed regarding plastics development and aquariums which might eliminate the scratching issue.
Glass has the common failure modes with aging silicon, poor quality construction, and/or damage by cracking issues (of which I'm experienced, gah!).
