Absolutely, they are all nice tanks. The problem I keep running into is the depth. I really need to stay around 18” or less due to the location of the tank but I would love to use all the length of the wall which would be around 48”. Most mass productions jump to a 20-24” depth when they go to the 48” length.

If I go mass production, I will probably go smaller with a UNS 90L (about 36x12x12) and drill it on the side and have exposed plumbing. If I build something, I was thinking 48x18x15 with an internal in the back corner as slim as possible (similar to Elos).

MyNaturia (affiliate of FijiCube) makes a 36x15.75x15.75 (about 38g) but they only use 8mm glass. If they would have used 10mm I would have pulled the trigger already.
