Acrylic tank

I found a great deal on an acrylic tank. Are they good for hc's?

The crabs and the sand will scratch the heck out of it.

But the sand would only scratch where the substrate is right?

Anywhere the crabs drag against it, or claw at it. So from the substrate line down due to the sand, from the substrate line up about four inches from the crabs exploring, and anywhere else where the crabs would be dragging against the sides.
