Check the craft department of Wal-Mart (or any discount crafty store)
for rectangular vases. If plastic might work, you might try the kitchen
department for clear, rectangular storage containers.

Hi Tappers,

I am going
berserk looking for 1-gallon
fish tanks
(mini-aquariums,
miniature aquariums,
snail tanks etc) on the internet,
for use in
our student optics labs.

They need to
be small enough so that they
are not a major labor to set up. (1 to 1.5 gallon)
They need to
be with parallel sides. (no
bowed front, no hex, no round, no slants)
They need to
be just the tank.
They
probably need to be glass.
They need to
be cheap enough that we could
buy 10-12 ea.

I probably
should have asked you all at first,

but I was
concerned with possibly doing too
much asking.

Many thanks
for any suggestions either
regarding sources or regarding searching.

U of MD
