Lots of people have acrylic tanks or acrylic wet/dry filters and CO2
injection. I have never heard of a problem before. It seems like he is
FOS. There is more than one type of material used in acrylic tanks
though so maybe one of those materials is susceptable. There is CO2 in
all tank water so if this were actually true acrylic tanks wouldn't be
of much use.
