    I prefer glass because it's easier to clean. That's a pro, but the con is that they are much heavier than acrylic.

    What about you?

    Only have had glass aquariums. I agree they are easier to clean. I do have an old 50 gallon aquarium that has 1/2 inch thick glass and it is heavier than my 72 gallon when empty.

    All of our current tanks (10g,20gh,55g,150g) are glass and we really like them. All of the tanks that I've had in the past have been glass also.
