I need help picking a rimless tank!


I found a nice a piece of furniture I'll be using as an entry way table that measures 50"W x 15.50"D x 34.50"H.

I'd like to get as BIG of a rimless tank as possible for this table but the only reasonable size tank I found was the 60-P cube which measures 24"x12"x14"

Any direction or advice would be greatly appreciated...I want to have a high quality tank that doesn't look like complete crap when you walk in the house ha!

Thanks everyone!

Innovative Marine Nuvo Aquariums look good. I don't have one, but would love to get one.

Deflected - I do like the look of their tanks and would maybe get one some day but I'm looking for more of a rimless look with just the tank. Thanks for the suggestion!

MERSF559 - Mr. Aqua is at the forefront as of right now. I can get the 17.1g tank for relatively cheap but I would really like to get something at least 20g.

Marineland and Aqueon both make a 30g that would sit perfectly on my new stand...But they have rims and I'm not open to derimming a tank that large. Hmm...

I think I've made up my mind... Going with the ADA 60-P

They are currently out of stock, anyone know how long before they get more inventory?

I haven't gotten any plants yet. So far I got an eheim canister filter 2211, a 24" finnex planted + led light, aquatek co2 regulator with a paintball tank, fluval stratum substrate, sand and a decent piece of manzanita driftwood.
The bad news is I got a small crack on my tank but marine depot is already sending me a replacement!

Glass Cages makes some great rimless tanks. They have very good prices considering it's custom made. You can check their delivery schedule route, they have a semi that drives around the country dropping off peoples tanks state to state. I have ordered from them twice, a 120 gallon low iron rimmed with custom stand and a 30 gallon low iron rimless. They are awesome tanks, nice thick glass on my rimless I can rest my arm on it while scaping without fear.
