acrylic was 1/2" and yes they replaced the tank with the 225 above and 3/4" acrylic
1/2” is pretty common in tanks under24” but the cost between 1/2” and 3/4” isn’t that different so I’m amazed at how many companies use 1/2” vs 3/4” especially when I would figure most people buying tanks above 200 gallons wouldn’t mind spending a couple hundred more for the heavier material. I just built my 520 out of 1” the cost between 3/4” and 1” through my distributor was $40 per sheet.
