Plastic Aquarium Tanks

So I figured I could get an aquarium tank for an outworld, but I can't seem to find a NORMAL aquarium tank that is plastic. With glass, I cant drill into. So does anybody know where I can find a plastic one without holes in the top?

Ok cool, sorry I didn't mention this before but the tanks I saw there were a decent size, not big.

Yea, like maybe a square foot? something that big would be perfect.

Amazon.com pretty much has everything you could want. Also, the reason you might be having an issue with finding an acrylic tank comes down to glass tanks being dirt cheap by comparison.
