I like the sound of the tank you're describing. I just got done pulling the rim off of a 30 gal regular(30x~20x12) and it is sitting outside full of water now. Seems like it's holding... I've been looking at building my own wide tank(24x18x12) and trying to price out glass, but I got to thinking when I was de-rimming. What if I were to tip the tank onto one of the sides(long one) thereby making that the bottom, then, remove the top, and make that the new side. Of course I'd need to take it all the way apart and have the glass cut, but aside from that expense it'd be a free tank, exactly to my specs. If I decide to go this route, I will absolutely post back about it. Oh, and feel free to use the idea if you'd like; I'm sure a 30g reg would be a lot easier to find than a breeder.
