Nano tank size suggestions?


Hello,

I am not able to find a nano tank that fits these requirements. Can someone please help?

20" long
less than 8 gallons
preferably really clear glass

Thanks

2.3 gallons total capacity sans substrate/hardscape/plants. Fun dimensions for a nano--18x5x7h, but down-checked for having that ubiquitous black rim.

True, but some may want the black rim. I'm throwing the idea around of using one as a fry tank.

The Deep Blue Professional tanks are great and have nice clarity. They're about 3.2 gallons (I've got two of them running, a few more waiting in the wings).

There are a couple Mr. Aqua, ADA and Do! Aqua tanks that fit those specifications. Just have to shop around a bit.
