When mom would always yell at you and your siblings or friends to quit playing ball in the house, it couldn’t be a more important warning to listen to if there was a fish tank present. Baseballs are known to wreak havoc on windows, so you could assume an aquarium wouldn’t fare much better when a ball strikes it. Aquarium glass is usually thicker than regular window panes, but it doesn’t make them immune to the fastball to your brother that got away from you. Acrylic aquariums, even though they can scratch much more easily than glass, are shatter resistant and might serve as a good alternative if rowdy kids are living in or frequent your home.
