    anybody has a 1.4(L)x0.75(W)x0.6(H) tank for sale? I know this is a odd size, but this is what I would consider my ideal. Something close might do, or perhaps somebody can recommend someone down here who can build me one at a reasonable price.

    Tanks are generally the cheap part of the exercise, the extra hardware is where the money comes into play and don't forget the Live ROck, that can cost double the price of the tank.
