Where to buy custom tanks?

Anyone know of someone that does custom tanks. I'm in El Paso, but would be willing to drive if someone could build a nice rimless tank in the 150-180g range.

Bet you could get someone in Cd. Juarez to do it, but there's no guarantee of the quality... Have you tried Googling? Probably yes, but maybe under glass or acrylic speciality manufacturers. You might even call a local pet (preferably fish) store for leads. Albuquerque has a big Aquarium attraction with multi-thousand and million-gallon tanks (with sharks even!), so they might provide some leads. Our local Clark's Pet Store has fish but the don't answer email these days. However, there are two salt-water fish stores in town and I recall one advertising all sizes of tanks; more leads. Buena suerte!

I've found that phone books return the best results for custom tanks. Look under "Aquariums".
