Where to find a good photo tank?

I can't seem to locate one of those 2 gallon rectangle glass tanks or those 1/2 gallon cubes that I can use for a photo tank. Where are you guys finding those? I tried using my acrylic Eclipse but the picture quality is bad, my 10 gallon is too big to get the fish still enough for a photo and my other containers are round so no good for photos...

Heard of betta barracks? Those get you decent pictures plus if they have neighbors, they'll flare.

Otherwise a 5 gallon (or 10 divided) from petsmart is 10-15.00 here, no filter just the tank, and would work.

I have this for a photography tank. It's 1 Gallon and glass so it won't scratch easily. It has crisp, clear glass and clear silicon to bind it together, no dark areas.

I leave it barebottom and you can prop a piece of white or black paper up at the back to bring out colours. It's small enough to use a desk lamp or something more elaborate :)

I have a Marina cubus that I bought at Petsmart. They are made of glass and easy to move around to set up. Here's a sample pic taken in the cubus:

I don't know if the container matters as much, but the lighting certainly will. Use a macro setting and natural sunlight. Using a flash will cause the colors to wash out. I'm trying to find these to use.

what some people use they call "Beanies" because they are the containers that Beanie babies were sold in.

currently i'm using a very small critter keeper for the fish i want the picture of, and just leaving the "bait" fish in it's jar. But ideally i would like to have a barrack system, or a 5 gallon divided long ways.
