    I can't do glass. Sorry.
    I personally think you should go with acrylic with such a large tank. A lot lighter, durable, will never leak - repairable, and best of all, it insulates the tank better and keeps the temps more stable.
    You really should go with acrylic. For 30" tall and that much water volume, I recommend at least 1" to 1 1/2" thick acrylic.

    ok what about it being only 24" tall? How much does cost differentiate between the two? I would actually prefer acrylic.
