Made by Aqua Tanks, this 55-gallon Clear-for-Life acrylic aquarium offers the shape and capacity you’d expect of a large glass tank without the hassle. Acrylic offers a number of advantages that shine through when it comes to high capacity aquariums.
To start, this acrylic tank weighs half of what an equivalent sized glass tank would weigh. The material also transfers light more effectively, so you end up with a 40% brighter view without harming your fish by using brighter lights. It’s also stronger than glass and is unlikely to crack or break if dropped – something that is always a fear on the back of your mind when dealing with a glass tank.
This is a basic tank, rather than a kit, so it’s designed to be used with a pump and filter, heater, and anything else necessary to support the habitat of your fish. Of course, since it’s not limited by any bundled equipment, you’re free to pursue a freshwater, saltwater, or any other type of aquatic environment.
When filled with water, a 55-gallon tank can weigh well over 500 pounds, so you’ll want to couple this tank with a strong base – a simple table isn’t reliable enough to count on, especially when you consider the damage 55 gallons of water is capable of causing if something were to go wrong.
This tank is exactly 4 feet long to provide a strong presence in your home. At 13 inches wide and 20 inches tall, your fish will have plenty of room.
