aquarium makers in chicago area

i'm looking to buy an aquarium. The stores have all the extra stuff like the glass top and lights which i don't need. Where can I just buy an aquarium? If there was someone making them in Chicago, I could save on shipping costs.

I am not sure on a local place, but perhaps check in with www.glasscages.com . They seem to have good prices, and they also seem to be in the Chicago area fairly often at trade shows (where you can pick up your tank and avoid shipping costs).

Are you looking for glass?, or acrylic?
There is an acrylic shop by my house. I could see if they make or will make something for you if you want acrylic.
