would there be any problems with using an acrylic tank for a sump? or a regular octo tank for that matter? the other day i read something about certain plastic compounds being toxic to some cephs. the site im lookin at is glasscages.com.

acrylic is fine, we have a number of acrylic tanks, but be careful when cleaning they scratch really easily!

yea. they're a lot of fun. and suprisingly friendly. i got a few to run on their hind legs across the room to me to get food. the aussies are way more aggressive than the new guinea ones, but only if you mess with em.
