Water storage.

Hi all. I'm thinking of getting a large container for my ro water so I can store larger quantities. Is there a specific type and wher can I buy them. Uk!!!
Also I want the optimum lighting for my corals. I have two t5 and one blue led. Is that enough?
Finally how many daylight hours should the fish have. I use just the blue light in the evening for an evening effect.

I'm not sure if they're available in the UK, but something like the Rubbermaid Brute line of cans will work: Rubbermaid Commercial Products - Europe Middle East Africa (EMEA) - Cleaning, Material Handling, Food, Safety, Waste

Ok thanks. Is there a certain chemical in conventional water butts that needs to be avoided?

There are "food safe" Brute containers that you can use, which I think are BPA free.
