I have a plan to have a shallow reef tank, ideally around 5feet wide, 2feet front to back and 10-18" deep. But I can't seem to find anything similar for sale anywhere, and my budget does not stretch to custom building it (unless someone can point me at a much cheaper glass supplier than I have been finding!).
I have however seen lots of much taller tanks...
...you may see where I'm going with this!
Is it a terrible idea to pick up a second hand taller 5' tank, cut the silicon, disassemble it, cut the glass down, and rebuild it with new silicon? Or are there any other suggestions on where to find what I am looking for?
