Where to find a square fish tank

I am not quite sure where to post this question, so here goes:

I have two goldfish in a teeny-tiny tank that need a bigger home. I have a solidly-constructed table that is built just like a fish tank stand and will hold a tremendous amount of weight, so I would like to find a fish tank that would fit on the table. It would have to be a square tank, either 26x26 or 27x27 in order to balance the weight correctly over the legs of the table. Can anyone tell me where I would find such a fish tank, or whether anyone makes such a tank? I would like it to be between 12 and 18" in height.

I am hoping not to have to custom order the thing or make it myself. In either of those cases, I will just get a whole new stand and tank and save time and funds. :)

I would also have to find or make a top for such a tank, too...

There are some here: http://www.glasscages.com/?sAction=ViewCat&lCatID=2

And by the way, the dimensions you mentioned will not be suitable in the long run for the goldfish, they will outgrow that tank and will need at least a 75-90 gallon tank.

"80 Gal. Cube 24 x 25 x 31 $270"
It's a bit pricey but that would work for you and your goldies. Personally, I'm not a fan of the tall tanks, I keep mine in a 75 gallon long tank. Gives the fish more room to swim side to side.

Thanks for the advice. I thought maybe the square tank would be good for them since they become such a big, fat fish, but length-wise swimming room is probably better. And at those outrageous prices, I'll just buy another used tank as I did for my 55-gallon. I got the stand, TruVu tank, light, undergravel filter and powerhead (which I don't use), substrate, driftwood, and lava rocks for $80. I will keep my eye out for a bigger tank, as you suggested. :)
