The strength of an acrylic aquarium is one of the top reasons avid aquarium owners choose it as an option. According to , an acrylic aquarium is 17 times stronger than glass, it insulates up to 20 percent better and it is up to 50 times stronger. An acrylic aquarium also offers more agility when needing to be transported since glass can easily be shattered beyond repair.
An acrylic aquarium is flexible, making it an excellent option if choosing to maintain a tank that holds more than 500 gallons or if choosing to place the tank in locations where occasional bumping may take place. The greater the water pressure is inside the tank, the stronger the exterior walls must be. In addition, acrylic beyond 1.25 inches thick can even be considered bulletproof.
Bowing may occur with acrylic surfaces but is unnoticeable as long as the tank is made out of thick enough acrylic for its dimensions -- the taller the tank, the thicker the surface must be. A comparing gallons, thickness and wall-to-top dimensions should be consulted before purchasing takes place.
An acrylic aquarium is also seamless and remains free of any glue remnants on the sides of tank walls. This also benefits the tank's overall clarity and brightness. If a filter, or other aquarium add-on, requires holes to be drilled into the tank's surface, acrylic can bend and form in ways glass cannot.
Although an acrylic aquarium may initially be more expensive than a glass aquarium, it is thought that acrylic will hold its value for longer and not be prone to breakage.
