Will this tank work with a full water setup

http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...3B+Accessories

I have had this lying around from an old micro vivarium, and I was wondering if it was full with water, if it would work and hold up to the pressure. It says its for reptiles and terrariums, I have it about half full right now and I am not having any problems. Anyone have any experience with this tank as an aquarium?

The glass on reptile tanks is thinner, not made to hold water

Would it make a difference if I said it was acrylic? Or are we just arguing symantics at that point? Also, would this mean a semi aquatic setup would work?

since its 1 solid peice of acrylic, you could probably get away with filling it all the way, but why test it?
there are hex aquariums out there.
also the fact that its acrylic kinda sucks, since they are SO easy to scratch. i scratched up every acrylic tank i ever tried.
