I've gone 5x7 for a year or two, never found such a tank, look tho' I might. Tried dip and dunk with stainless steel racks in open tanks. I had trouble managing more than a few, scratching negs, etc.

Wound up with a Jobo 3005 (five exposures) tank, rotated on an old motorized Unicolor base. This works like a charm, even with pyro. You don't need the whole Jobo machine. Just a funnel with a 30-degree bend in the snout (plastic funnel, reshaped in boiling water.)

Before I found my Unicolor roller on eBay ($20) I rolled the tank to and fro in my bathtub. That was tedious, though.
