Does that mean a 2 foot high would not work well for a sorority?

There is a 20 extra high - not seen often.

My LFS has these actually! Not for sale but they use them for their smaller goldfish on the bottom racks. I would loooove to see my Betta's in them, so very unique but also very space consuming length wise at least but they would be amazing for Betta's, I think ^_^

I would suggest a custom-made one I saw but then some "I-won't-say-the-word" would come on and complain about the price or compare it to a mass-manufactured tank of common dimensions.

I always appreciate when someone says up front that they are on a budget - it's pretty frustrating to take the time to formulate solutions, only to hear that they have no money to spend. Yes it can be an expensive hobby, but for many it's not.

Forgot to add: +1 20 long. Very versatile tank.

As an engineer, I understand that a 36"X12"X10" tank, if built of glass, would require a dead-flat, sturdy platform/stand. An acrylic tank would be more forgiving...and easier for a hobbyist to build.
