Well I live in Iceland so you can definitely get it a lot cheaper! I paid around 74$ for it, with polished edges. Keep in mind that EVERYTHING is very expensive here, I would have bought a readymade tank if I only could find it here! nothing but ugly expensive acrylic tanks here!

The specs are:
outside measurements are 250x250x300 MM that is 10x10x12" aprox.
Cut and polished glass is:
bottom 238mm x 238 mm
front and back 250 mm x 300 mm
sides 238 mm x 300 mm
the glass is 6mm thick.
make sure to get a good "gun" for the tube of silicone, mine broke down in the middle of glueing, I had to do a lot of cleaning up after I put the tank together.
I'll definitely make another one later though
