My suggestion would be to look around Wal Mart, Linens and Things, and any other place that carries nic nac foo foo crap. You are bound to find a glass or acrylic cube somewhere that is used for some other reason. Then just make sure it is water-tight or can be made so. A bead of aquarium safe silicone would do wonders as long as there are no substantial gaps in the seams.
That is about the only way to find one for under $20. Of course you would have to build a hood and add your own filter. But if you are stuck on the cube aquarium idea it could be done relatively cheaply.

|Rex Grigg||AquaBotanic has a nice 12 gallon cube with built in filtration and a 25 watt PC plant light. They are pretty inexpensive at $99|

|digger||Petsmart carries a cube aquarium around here. It looks to be 30-40 gallons.|

|GDominy||Heh.. This is why I am thankful that there is an aquarium manufacturing company/factory here where I live... It makes it easy to get custom sizes cheap....|

Glass Cages makes a lot of odd sizes or can make anything you want.
I've wanted to make a wide and long but shallow tank for a while and have been thinking of just making it from 1/4" acrylic from Home Depot. You use Weldon, a glue that actually fuses the parts together and makes them one. Takes a little practice, but it would be neat to say you made it yourself. And a small nano tank would be a nice low-risk first attempt.

|evan||I was lookign through the forums at old stuff. i was wondering where i could get a acryclic cube shaped aquarium with a clear lid. that would be really cool to make a nano ecosystem. do you know where i can get other "weird" shaped aquariums?|
