Is there a glass bowfront nano made?

I'm looking to replace a plastic 5g bowfront with a glass one that's slightly larger to accommodate the light that I have. Is there such a tank? It needs to be 8.5"-10" W x 12"-14" L, height is flexible

Or can someone recommend a good GLASS nano that fits those dimensions. I'm looking for a tank only. I don't need a top or light. Thanks!

That's really close... the footprint is just little too big for where it sits. Thanks for the link!

I started think that those dimensions seemed kind of big for a 7g, so I plugged it into this calculator http://home.comcast.net/~jdieck1/volcalc.html assuming that 15" is the max width, and 11" is the side length, I get 10.1 gallons. Those dimensions are wrong, or?

Maybe the 17 & 15 is the dimension of the base including the flare-out. Anybody know?

The Odyssea B5 is a 5 gallon bowfront, although the bow isn't as exaggerated as it is on, say, an Eclipse. It's closer to a bowed-front cube really. I love mine.

Hey Otter

I have the 7 allglass and just measured it. The length without the base is 17''. The width starts at 7'' and is 10'' at the bow. The base is removable and is over 18'' long. It's a beautiful tank if you can fit it. And it comes with a crappy hood and light. And petco had them for about 50$

Those dimensions will work perfectly!
