These are nice and LOW PROFILE. I think this is what you’re describing. 64 ounces of pleasure. I used them on a 40% running both a DA150 and another on a ZDZ180.

I don't see a reference to an example of a good 64oz. low profile tank.

DuBro makes tanks up to 100oz

Sullivan makes a lot more shapes, but their largest size is 32.

Or the Fuji bottle as mentioned above, that would be my first choice if it fits.

You will be hard pressed to find a pre-made tank that large with the higher quality hardware worthy of a 40% build. It's easy, here is the video.

EF and PAU offer the 50 0z size. Not sure if they qualify as low profile though.
