I'm hoping to setup a refugium that will sit under my stand. The space is very narrow. Looking for recommendations for a tank that is under 11" deep. Length should be 20" max, with something around 18" preferred. I'd like to go higher than 5gal. Any recommendations? I've been searching all day and have not found much.

How about a DIY tank? At that size they are quite easy to build with 3/8" glass cut to size by a glass shop.

Over the last 8 years I've made 7 tanks. I still have 3 and all 7 are still in use by me and their new owners.

20" L is actually too long. Thought I could make that work by cutting the openings on the cabinet but the most I can take off is about 1" making 19" the max. Ron, thanks for the suggestion to make my own! I actually finally found one online that works. Landen brand. 17.7"L x 10.5" D. Perfect for what I need!
