Do you think it's worth it to buy an acoustic bass?

I've been teaching myself how to play bass for about 6 months now. I have an Ibanez electric bass. I really like how acoustic basses look and was wondering if in your opinion, it's worth buying. Is an acoustic bass loud enough to have band practice without plugging it into an amp? Do you use an acoustic bass, and how do you like it? I'm looking at one that's $200, which is more expensive than the electric I bought. So yeah... what do you think? Should I get one?

THANKS! :)

(Oh, and to be clear I don't mean an upright bass, just an acoustic one, like this: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Ibanez-AEB5E-Acoustic-Electric-Bass-105956627-i1470159.gc).

An acoustic bass will not be loud enough unamplified to play with other people. The body is not large enough to sound out the low bass strings, and the noise they make is barely audible, and honestly is not much different than playing you electric unamplified, maybe only a slight bit louder.
An Acoustic/Electric would make more sense to buy, so you have the acoustic look (if you like it) and a some what louder unamplified sound for alone practice, but I still would not say it is worth buying in comparison to an electric.
