Long shallow deep tanks

Besides the 22 gallon mr Aqua, what are some larger versions of a long shallow deep rimless tank? Preferably besides ada.

So far I see a mr Aqua 75 gallon. Any in the 40-50 gallon range?

I will replant the tops and see what happens. I have been doing that, it just seems strange that they would do that voluntarily. I was hoping to avoid it if possible as it makes me feel...

It doesn't rub off.

I noticed the marks exist mostly on the older growth.
