Where do you guys get these long/shallow rectangular tanks? All I see are bow fronts and they cost a fortune.
I wanted to have the water touch that way I can run one filter, but the Glass divider would have to be trim down, and i was too scared to do that. so each tank is fully self contain. It would normally be 3 separate tank with 3 sponge filter. The only thing this tank share is the 24 inch light. I am debating about moving to a mini canister filter for each thought.

As for the tank, this might be pretty easy to find at your local fish store. This is a Betta 6 tank, so i could add three more divider and make it 6 separate tank, but i felt that was way too small to work with. As for pricing, this tank cost me around $50~60 dollars. I don't know if that consider expensive. but for what i wanted to do, it was worth it for me.

you could leave out the partition and have a 24inch long ~6 gallon tank.
