Above was a 120cm L x 50 cm W x 50cm acrylic tank make of 25 mm thickness with 3 bracing. It is clean in look and strong in design. It could easily transport around in a car instead of engaging fish tank mover.
It look heavy. It is robust. Good for application for robot application in school!
We have performed a test as comparison of clarity between acrylic and glass. The colour of yellow sample was dull and darker after the glass masked. It reminds as good as originally yellow for the case of acrylic. Indeed acrylic offer superior clarity than the glass including the crystal grade.
We use thicker acrylic 25mm that is double the thickness of glass, it still perform better. Detail as above.
Another test was done during scratches test. It shows the same effect that glass attenuate the yellow picture that it appeared greenish.
The statement of acrylic is easily scratched - NO from Tankmaker.com
Glass is better against scratches - NO from Tankmaker.com
What to do if scratches found? Glass unable to remove, acrylic can be removed easily - YES from Tankmaker.com
Our answer is basaed on 2 tests conducted by Tankmaker SGTeam. Acrylic material used is Plexiglas from Evonik.
With same force used on scratch test, deep cut found on surface of both glass sample while fine hairlines was found on surfaces of both acrylics sample. This shown acrylic provide more resistance to scratch than glass; which in line to the properties of acrylic material that it posses strong sustainability and anti-impulse force (16 times stronger than the glasses).
Another merit of acrylic is, the scratches can be removed easily through polish. While the scratches for glass is almost impossible to be removed for aquarium tank.
