Acrylic tanks?

Hey all! I've been on the hunt for a new tank, and I would love a 10 gallon frameless acrylic tank. I'm having trouble finding such a tank, though. There's the Clear For Life acrylic tanks, but they're not completely open top. Any suggestions for companies/websites that ship acrylic tanks in the US? Thanks! :]

You won't be able to find them. You'll have to DIY. The acrylic will need to be very thick for this to happen. Probably not worth the cost.

SeaClear at Petco, but the smallest is 2Og? http://m.petco.com/product/11533/Sea...um-Combos.aspx

Or ask your LFS about TruVue brand.
Another choice is to contact custom acrylic / sump builders on eBay.

I build acrylic tanks and for me to do a rimless 10 gallon would be $125

petsmart has clear for life in 10 gal for 211.99 so cheaper to buy the custom built
