ideas for 500 gallon pre mixed saltwater tank?

I would like a 500 gallon or so tank to make and store SW for the main tank . Anyone have any ideas on construction or something I could use?
Thanks!

The only thing that comes to mind for me is large rubbermaid's (100 gal each), or barrels of some sort.
Got any recent pics Brenden?

why do you need 500 gals of water???
They sell the large heavy duty plastic storage tanks at farm supply stores, they come in many sizes.
