Hey there

I can tell you, from experience, that while many other tanks WILL fit dommies, the fit either won't be perfect or it will be a total mess.

XL/XR tanks might fit but you'll have to adapt the fuel intake lines and the seat to fit.
Yamaha XT or TT & Suzy DR tanks might fit, but they're a hassle to fit (mount-wise) and the seat doesn't line up at all.

Overall it's a pretty annoying job to replace the NX's tank with one from another model. Most importantly, fairings won't line up AT ALL.

That's why I spent half a year searching for a large tank for my NX.
