If I could do it all over again I would have spent the money and went acrylic 24x24" in 1" thickness w/ an external overflow box. Maybe that's overkill, but that's just me.

You could do 1/2" euro-braced (if needed) to save $.

I would keep the Marineland stand. I happen to like it and I got it for a good price.

Keep in mind there is different acrylic ie: extruded vs cast and that will definitely vary price on what is chosen.

Also, acrylic as we know scratches easy, but if you take your time and take precautions that's not too much of an issue.

Ill PM you some reasonable priced acrylic aquarium manufactures I have used.

If it does scratch you can buff it out.

There are pros and cons in regards to glass vs acrylic. You can research for yourself and find out what is best for you.
