There are probably many different types of plastic tanks so it may be a possibility? If they deteriorate you could probably see the debris in the tank or they may start to leak?, which would be very bad, especially with a permanently mounted tank.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing. I don't know why. It's a mystery!
