    I have a glass tank and a acrylic sump for these reasons.. Glass for the tank because glass is cheaper by a long shoot and more importantly, glass dose not scratch nearly as easily as dose Acrylic. Marine algae and deposits are tougher to remove so for me acrylic is not the right choice for the tank. However I do have an acrylic sump because acrylic can be DIY drilled and put together easily.
