  • Glass mixed Acrylic tanks...

    Im getting a local quote on a tank builder who makes tanks out of both acrylic and glass. The side panels will be starphire glass and the bottom and top will be made out of thick acrylic. Have you guys heard of this? Any positive or negative comments? I dont know of anyone who has this style of aquarium and the price is about the same as an all glass starphire.

    i heard that silicone doesnt stick as well to acrylic...my main concern would be how he would glue everything together...

            What would be the benefit according to the builder?

            Seems like a risk with no upside...
