Aquarium Dosing Container or Bottle

Hello everyone,
I made a video about DIY Dosing Bottle/Container. I tried to regroup many information that I learn and the mistake I did in the past, it's a bit of long video (sorry) but I love to hear all the details that make something useful so I just "Puke" what I knew on that video .

Talking about details in this video, Plastic is one subject that I wanted to raise awareness so I did an image to help with this:

That chart lists acrylic in the other category . Is that a missprint ? Does it mean another type of acrylic than the type tanks are made of ? Otherwise it is a great resource . Thanks for posting .

My wife says if I get one more aquarium she is going to leave me . I sure am going to miss her fried chicken .

I'm not quite sure why PET is listed as unsafe - yes, it can leach certain toxic chemicals, but only if it's heated, and surely you're not storing fertilizers in a hot environment?

It's also used in a lot of water bottles, soda bottles, etc.
