Default Sterilite tub vs. aquarium

I have a question, as a hedgieless pet owner at the moment, about housing.

Many people here do not like the idea of aquariums (for reptiles, snakes or fish) to be used for hedgehogs. Yet, people will suggest a clear/frosted sterilite tub instead. The main arguement against aquariums is lack of ventilation.

Aren't they essentially the same? If you keep the lids off the aquarium or the tub, you have a rectangular, plastic or glass container (with a cute hedgie inside). Same ventilation, in my opinion.

So what makes sterilite tubs better than aquariums?

(note: this isn't a debate over using C&C cages... we already know thats a better option than any of the above )
