I am in the process of getting all the parts together for a 2 foot cube tank. This tank will use pressurized CO2, high fertilization, MH pendant lighting (either a 175 or 250 W), Flourite, with a DIY CO2 reactor hooked up to an XP3.
After not being able to track down an Oceanic cube in Vancouver, I am looking at custom made. I have priced out a glass tank at 275 Canadian, built locally, and a plexi tank for 275 as well.
Based on the price, what would you do? It seems a no brainer to me to go with plexi, and the only draw back seems to be the ease of scratching the plexi, but is there more?
Thanks in advance for the help.
