    Perspex scratches very easily so one would need to be careful with removing algae it also flexes substantially. sealing would need to be done with perspex glue(i forget the name but have some in my garage from all experiments.)silicone doesnt work. you could build lots of stunning gadgets tho esp skimmers and reactors. Good luck tho.i am following with interest.
