Larger "Long" tanks?


Is Mr.Aqua going to make a bigger long tank anytime soon? like the 12 gallon that got so popular? maybe something around the 23 Gallon long (36x12x12)?
The only way I can get one now is to either a De-rim a standard one, or have it custom built (which is too pricey at around 300-400).

No plans for longer ones atm.

Thats unfortunate, I believe a LOT of people love the dimensions of the standard 20gallon long tanks but at the moment there are no rimless versions of it....If someone were to make it im sure it would sell like hot cakes

I'd be on that like crazy. If Mr. Aqua ever manufactures those dimensions, please bring them to the states!

I think more shallow tanks would be nice.

How hard is it to put together an acrylic tank? Acrylic isn't so expensive is it? I've never looked into it.

Yea there are a bunch of places you can get an acrylic on made but, only thing is most people dont like the look of acrylic as much, they like the look of a rimless glass tank but there are not really a rimless glass tank with the same one as the 20L. I have LOTS of tanks and right now my only non rimless tank is my 20L.

Rimless glass and rimless acrylic can't look that much different.

Have you seen a rimless acrylic tank? After a while, the long side begins to bow out (deflect) a bit. Maybe as much as a quarter inch.

This was taken from the warranty page of an acylic tank manufacturer:
"Acrylic fabrication on some builds may or may not contain slight deflection, a common occurrence in the hobby known as bowing"

I'd stick with glass when going rimless.

Wonder what price point it would be at. with the 12G being at 80$... a 20g or 23g rimless should run somewhere between 150-200?
