    Does anyone do acrylic or have a large one for sale? I have a 10g but it only lasts 4 days.

    I have a hex; in the 18x18-ish side, ~24" high; black back. It was used as a top-off reservoir.

    Ok, sides ~8" height 24".
    Previous reply I refer to the footprint/area it would cover.

    You'd need a 12" x 24" x 24"/32" minimum to hit close to 30/40 gallons.

    The hex I think holds about 15g if the formula off the web is right.
    I'll confirm by filling it...

    Punched up the dimensions into Taps to get an estimate and just raw acrylic will cost you anywhere between $230 - $285 (24/32" tall) for the build out of 1/4" acrylic. That'll give you a really rough estimate for a DIY solution, before you get fancy with any extras (probe/tube holders, lids, different color acrylic, etc.)
