custom made tanks
 
I live out here in N. California. I wondering if I can get a custom size tank done. Basically take a 55g tank and instead of being around 12" back I would like to have one 18" back. I need to get a new tank and wondering how much more would a 48"x18" x24" deep?

so basically a standard 90g tank then :-)

Exactly, just buy a 75 or a 90, you could even do a 110XH. There are also 3' tanks that are 18" front to back and range from 30B, 40B, 50, and 65 gallons.

Petsmart usually has the best deals on tanks that I've seen, they often go on sale for 10-15%.

Petco also has a $1/gallon sale, up to 55 gallons, going on right now so you could get the 40B for $40. Dosn't meet your total size, but does have the width advantage.

55's really are too skinny.

Check out Glasscages.com They built most anything you want:-)

Don't buy from glasscages without reading all the horror stories first. I have seen one nice big one in person, I would never trust it to hold water in my house.

I agree for a tank of it's size, 55's should be wider. I can't wait to setup my 75.

Quoting one of the great meme's of the internet: Pics or it didn't happen :lol:

I just have to see a fish room with 70 tanks that isn't a store :-D

And also the filtration system...
