While Plastic Tanks are cheaper than their Acrylic counterpart, both have a variety of functions and uses in the reptile world. Plastic has the convenience of being lightweight, with carrying handles and a variety of entrances and openings, making them ideal for livefood, insects or for breeding purposes. While Acrylic tends to be more aesthetically pleasing and used for creating a stunning visual display of multiple tanks, typically as a permanent or temporary home for spiders, reptiles, snakes and other creatures.

At aquapet, we have an incredible range of styles and sizes so you can find the perfect match for your set-up.

Acrylic Tanks

Not only are our Acrylic Tanks beautiful to look at, but they are incredibly functional too! With an advanced magnetic lid locking system to keep your pets safely inside, while being fully ventilated due to 3mm ventilation holes in the lid. The clever design means that even when stacked, the tanks remain completely ventilated, allowing you to create an extraordinary display by combining several acrylic tanks together.

The tanks acrylic thickness ranges from 2.5mm to 4mm depending on the size of the tank. We have 4 sizes in total.

Plastic Breeding Tanks

Our Plastic Tanks are ideal for breeding, transportation as well as for storage. They have black lids with slotted air vents, a side-opener for feeding, a top door and two carrying handles. These tanks also make good homes for smaller animals, such as spiders.
