Another great thing about the acrylic is that it retains heat much better than glass. Glass does not hold much energy, and dissipates it over its surface. Acrylic keeps the heat trapped and stationary. This, on the other hand, further reinforces the fact that this aquarium is perfect for schools of tropical fish. If, for example, you’ve got bettas (and many people do, they’re very popular) you must know that the males are very territorial. If kept in a confined space, the males will start lashing out on each other, and will attempt to kill one another. In this sense, SeaClear is very good for bettas, because it presents a nice and warm habitat for them to live in, and a large enough space not to have them at each other’s throats.
