list of bookshelf (long) tanks?

Hi all, looking to gather a list of all possible bookshelf long tanks. So far I've looked at Mr aqua 6, 12, and Ada 45f. What else is out there?

I really like the Mr aqua 12, and actually, proportionally, it is perfect for my tastes, (with regards to its length compared to it's depth and height), but it might be a tad too large for my space.

Fwiw I'm not opposed to going custom.

What's out there?

I'm looking for anything in the 6-10 gallon range.

Hey 6speed,

There's the Petco 6 gallon bookshelf aquarium.

ADA 60f is beautiful. My only issue with it is that it's a little too deep front to back at approx 12" with only 7" in height. I'd like something with dimensions that are similar in height and depth (front to back).

Something like a 30x8x9.

I also like the Mr aqua 12 gallon tank. I want to buy it myself, but pets are not allowed in my apartment and I was lucky enough to get by with my 5 gallons, but anything bigger than that would be frowned upon by the landlord. If you can fit it in, I would go with that.

The Mr. Aqua 12G will probably be my next small tank. It's gorgeous.

The ada 45 and 60 f's are growing on me. I still wish they had a tad more height and a tad less depth, but they're so nice looking.

If my cabinet will support the 60f I'll go that route. Does anyone know what tank (empty) weighs?

deep blue professional has 1,2,3, and 5 compartment betta tanks (with removable dividers) that are relatively small the biggest being about 18 inches long and 2.5g but it retains that really long narrow look.

Something a little bigger, mr aqua JUST as in today released a 22ish gallon tanks (36x12x12) rimless thats slightly bigger than a standard 20 long, and then there is a 33g extra long which is a 48" narrow tank (maybe not a "bookshelf" tank but good for a sideboard)

I think the question should be weight when full? About 73lbs for just the H2O (8.75 gal X 8.34lbs/gal).

Yeah, I had calculated the water and substrate weight, so I was just trying to figure up what the tank would weigh to add that into the calculation. Granted, if it'll hold 73lbs of water, what's another 15 for the tank?

I'm mostly concerned because the top of the furniture it will sit on is granite and I don't want to crack it/get in trouble with my wife or ruin all her china that is underneath on the shelves!

I'd be more worried bout water damage from water changes & leaks. Good luck.
