Glass or acrylic?

  • I’ve seen mostly 99.99% of saltwater tanks are always acrylic and not glass, like how it’s flipped with freshwater. Is there any specific reason for this? Is it due to size, or salt eating the silicone or something else?

  • I’d say acrylic for saltwater tanks since I’m not sure how well silicone will hold up over time, and glass also limits you to how big you can go with weight limits and glass thickness requirements.
