Last night my 25S sprung a leak for the third time in two years, along the same damned seam I always seem to repair. The tank is probably 14 years old now so I guess I should be expecting problems anyway. I'm downright tired of it and it's time for a new main tank.

So, here's what I'm looking for...
-A basicly rectangularly shaped tank (could go flatback hex...maybe bowfront) bigger than 25g but less than 50g. 35-45 probably.
-I think want an acrylic this time around for the weight savings as I seem to be moving fairly often at my age (us early 20 somethings seem to move a lot).
-No built in filtration. I'm planning on getting a canister.
-About 36" in length as it's a comfortable size to work with.

So here's where you, the ever helpful community, can lend a hand.
Can you steer me around the web a bit to find some nice acrylic tanks that fit the above? Most of my websearches and the links section are coming up with nano-only arylics.
Will a larger acrylic tank be less suceptible to leakage?

Hello! has a nice selection of acrylic tanks in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Check them out if you haven't already. I almost ordered from them but than decided to go with an oceanic 58 gal tank from my LFS.
