Sean, I found a Rubbermaid Brute 44 gal can. Its nice an thick and very sturdy. Not to many choices locally. Do you think this will work?

Any container like that can work as long as it has a label on it so that it is safe for drinkable water...I think the label is a 2 or something. Check the bottom it'll tell you.

I was reading some other post in other forums and one person said that if the product has the NSF seal it is safe to use. My can has the NSF seal on the bottom.

I know Lowe's website says they are food grade. My LFS uses them for all of their contract accounts and they are very conservative when it comes to things that can affect tank health.

Food grade. That's what I was thinking of. Good call.

I have a cinnomon clown and a spledid dottyback in my 20 gal at work. I plan on taking down that tank and moving everything into my 29 gal. My cinnomon clown is very aggressive and i want to add a coulple more fish to the 29 gal. Im thinking i should add the new fish before i bring the the others home. What do you all think?

If you are not totally in love with the Clown, you could take it to the LFS and trade for the other fish you want. 😀

What's a cinnamon clown? Don't think I've ever seen those. Could trade him in and get a nice pair of snowflakes or Picassos
