Small cube tanks are really easy to build yourself if you can get a glass cutter and some old scrap glass (old louvre blades, old window panes, etc) and a tube of silicon. Ask a glazier if you can scrounge in their bins too - lots of scraps under 30cm square to be found like that too. Sandpaper or a diamond stone will take off the edges. Won't look as nice as the curved corner versions but you will be able to get a lot more tanks for the price of one commercial tank. (silicon some plastic trim to the corners to hide the glass edges and it looks pretty good).

17cmx17cmx17cm = 5L approx

20cmx20cmx20cm = 8L

25cmx25cmx25cm = 15L

30cmx30cmx30cm = 27L

There's a bloke in Cairns that makes small cubes, he sells them for about $15 - not the best looking in the world, but they do the job.

The pic i'm attaching are the cubes inside of a big tank of warm water - easier than setting up lots of little heater.
