90 gal. means 4ft. light fixture(cheaper if you're going metal halides).
less salt (reef crystals) used on the water changes too.
and less time dealing with it.

Larger tank means less abrupt swings in water quality. So its easier to catch an oops before it wipes out your tank. Glass because you can clean it with a razor blade and you don't have to buy the acrylic scrapers.... I'm sure they don't work as well as a good 'ol razor blade.

A larger tank will be easier to manage.
Glass is less likely to get scratched.

im leaning towards the 90 gal(90 long) for ease of maintenence and lower cost to run effectivley. im sticking with the pwr cmpt lights and I have yet to need a heater...im sure if I didnt need a heater for my 47 gal then im not gonna need one for the big boy(ill still have one just in case though) im going to need a new pump and I plan to set up a sump with a ref under it. ill probably add a tang or two and some chromis or other docile schooling fish and get my engineer goby a buddy but I dont plan on having alot of fish in it, that will keep the water changes down due to the very minimal bio load. I should be good with keeping pretty much anything else as far as corals go. I bee nshopping around and I found a place where Ican get a 90 long for 187 w/o stand whch is super cheap. im gonna need a skimmer also but ive been talking to buddy been reefing for 30 years and owns his own store(thats my LFS) and he said i could get a skimmer..but i treat my new tank like my current oen i really wont need one it would help a bit but not enough to really make a huge difference in the productivity of the tank plus its gonna be open. I leave about 3-4 inches on my tank empty b/c I run pwr heads across the top to create waves which literally keeps my water churning like actual waves, kinda noisy i guess but it puts me to sleep lol

acrylic is alot lighter and clearer. scraches there are scrach removal kits out there for aquariums. I like my acrylic 55g but of coarse I got to set it up, I just got it a few days ago.

TRUE.....But you can buff acrylic to a brand new look. My nano had crazy scratches from my move, but after 30-45mins. of buffing, it looks the same way it did when I purchased it.
