Looking for ideas for a long, yet shallow nano

I'd like to setup a fairly small (volume wise) tank that is much longer than it is tall. Does anyone have something like this setup? It seems most tanks tall and not that long.

Will be putting in schooling fish and live plants

The MrAqua 12g longs are nice and long and skinny. There are quite a few 12 longs on this site set up pretty amazingly.

If you want to go real small I just noticed these - http://www.amazon.com/Deep-Blue-Bett.../dp/B00804LQA6

2.3g and the dividers are removable so you can use it as a single long tank.

Get a petco book shelf tank 6 gallons. Beautiful dimensions and today you can use the 50% off coupon and get it for 25$ just picked up one for that much today !
Although it is acrylic, I don't know if that bothers you it doesn't bother me , and I like that fuere are no ugly silicone seams. Just have to be care ful not to scratch it.

Check out SaltyNC iwagumi tank its the same one and his is just amazing

If you'd like to go smaller the Deep Blue 3 g is a gorgeous tank.

Somewhat shocked has one. It comes with dividers, and two of them can be used to cover it leaving room for an HOB.

It is my dream tank!
