Re: Acrylic Tank Question

I have a 30 gallon acrylic tank. The acrylic tanks are built with a rim of
acrylic across the top of the tank which connects the sides of the tank and
acts as reinforcement . This piece of acrylic covers around 30% of the
surface of the tank and algae and sediment of the evaporated water clouds up
this acrylic rim and blocks some of the light entering the aquarium. Unlike
glass covers which are removable this is not removable and is quite
difficult to clean. Does anybody have any ideas how to clean it? In terms of
a planted aquarium are there any advantages to a glass vs. acrylic?

Thanks for your help.
