I'm about to start doing saltwater aquarium and I would like to find out what kind of tank should I get acrylic or glass. If I did go for a glass what is the best way to clean the glass without scratching it.

Mr Clean magic erasers clean either quite well.
Make sure you get the original no soap ones.

I prefer acrylic myself.

Acrylic scratches when you look @ it sideways, & you need a plastic scraper to work on it.
Magnetic scrapers can be used along with some with metal blades made for them.
The worst infraction is getting sand between surfaces near the bottom.

250 gallon mixed reef, 2 Reefbreeder's Photon V 2, Deepwater BLDC 12, DAS EX-3 Skimmer, MTC mini cal, 2-3/4" Sea Swirls, Aquacontroller & 6 Tunze pumps.
