Nano Tank for a Classroom

My wife has been bitten by the tank bug. She has gotten permission to place a small tank, no bigger than ten gallons, in her classroom. One rule - it needs to be acrylic.

Are there any small acrylic tanks out there in the 5-10 gallon range? She and I both enjoy the look of the Fluval Spec and Edge (though the edge is a PITA to work with for me), but those are both glass.

The aqueon nano aquariums are pretty nice and they're acrylic.

Thank you! I had missed that those were acrylic in my search somehow. These designer tanks are so pricey. Gotta see if we can get it for cheaper than $80. Maybe around the holidays.

Unfortunately they are, there are a bunch of new nanos though, some better aesthetically, but the price range are all fairly high - just trying to profit off the trend I guess!
If you know anyone local that works with acrylics, perhaps you could get a simple acrylic tank made for much less than these AIO systems. Then it could also be customized whatever way you like!
