Where to find Glass aquarium with rounded front sides

When I lived in Japan, I purchased this tank (60cm by 30cm by 35cm) and a larger low iron glass one (90cm by 45cm by 45cm) that I plan to set up after the stand arrives. They both frameless and are made of glass with the front and 2 sides of glass are one piece of glass. I have looked for similar tanks in the states but cannot find. Does anyone know where I can purchase similar tanks in the states. I am considering a 4' /120cm tank or even 6'/180cm tank and want it to be glass with the same rounded corners.

Thanks in Advance

Bump: Here is a closeup of the right front corner

I'm not 100% sure, but I think that a glass tank in the sizes you are looking for and with rounded corners is going to be almost impossible to find. It's fairly difficult to fabricate a piece of glass like that, especially in larger sizes.

Consider an acrylic tank if you just have to have those round corners, otherwise go with the typical square corners.

When I was in Japan they had a 120cm by 45cm by 45cm or 60cm (can't remember) so I know they make them at least a little bigger than my largest tank.

Here is the larger tank that I am having a stand built for.

Dang these look nice. I like the larger radius corners on the first one.

Thanks, they were slightly cheaper than the ADA brand and I liked the rounded corners. To be fair the ADA tanks were made of even clearer glass and if I can't find a manufacturer who makes similar tank in US I will purchase an ADA for next larger tank.
