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...

Best wishes for your fishes!

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. :)

Best wishes for your fishes!
