Default Re: Glass tank/Fish tank

I personally am not a huge fan of tanks/glass cages. For one, screen lids can be nearly the same or even exceed the cost of the tank itself! Second being that they're so heavy which makes them really tough to move around, and if you were to drop them, they could shatter upon hitting the ground. Bins and actual cages on the other hand would not. Tanks also don't have the best ventilation being that the only screened area is the lid, and this allows for ammonia to build up in the tank. This isn't a problem with bins because they can easily be modified to have screens so ventilation is good. One pro of the tank however, is that they don't have bars to be climbed or chewed on which makes them a little safer. This is just my opinion, I still do use tanks though and think they can work fairly well
