Need more appropriate tank- larger!

Seeking a larger custom sized tank....
(from what I have been doing which is a slew of nano/pico). I got the go-ahead from my spouse as long as I keep up with my blue endlers..... I still like low tech, but want to move out of nano as I just dont have room to move most of the time... Im thinking 20-40 gallons... who would be the person/company to speak too?


Is there a company that has reasonable build times? this need to be visually sexy even before I plant it (rimless)!
Since I just got back after a few year hiatus, suggestions? Thanks!

At that size I would not see the reason to go custom.

A UNS tank is nice.

Got myself a UNS 60U, not disappointed at all, great craftsmanship and beautiful tanks.

Thanks for the link. I want it pretty specific- Longer/taller but not too deep. Looking more towards 24 long, 11 deep but 20 high because im a gluten for punishment.

+1 for the UNS 60U-great tank, fantastic craftsmanship and plenty tall in my opinion. What it "sacrifices" in height, it makes up for in higher PAR values at the substrate.

livebearerlove,

Sounds like you need to go to Google and do a search on Frag tanks. They are normally wide and deep but not very tall compared to most tanks. You might find one 20" tall.
