ADA Style tank on a budget?

Anyone know of any knock-off ADA style tank manufacturers? I read through the DIY stickies and they didn't seem to offer good information on building a flat-bottom tank (bottom needed to be elevated to allow for bowing)... I really like the minimalistic styling they have going, but the price is outrageous. Seems like someone who knows what they are doing could make the same thing for 10% of what they are asking...

I am considering a new 20-30g tank for my home office, and an ADA Garden Cube would be awesome, but I just feel like I am getting ripped off...

Our plant club scaped a Jebo rimless tank. Well, maybe it had a rim at the bottom -- I can't remember. Sure looked sweet though, and a few of the guys said good things about them, despite the reputation of their lighting system.

I believe Sherry ordered with mixed success from GlassCages.com. Hopefully she posts but I seem to remember her posting feedback on this forum after receiving her tank.

IUnknown on other forums has cool cannister in/outtake glassware. Hoppycalif/VaughnH has linked and given feedback on an ADA style glasschecker, in case you are not aware.

HTH. Please post any creative solutions you come up with.
