I got one there a few months ago and I believe the 32g was $33. They make a 20g that I wish a local store had but I couldn't locate one.

I'm talking about us losers who use buckets or whatever.

I used to work at the NY aquarium and we used garbage cans with wheels for some water mixing and moving animals but that was a long time ago and I do to know if the cans now will leach bad stuff into the water?

I'm getting sick of 5 gal buckets
Unfortunately I'm now a "cool kid"

I still use the 7.5 gal containers, it is sickening, I'm getting a reservoir! Seriously. That's the only next step, 200 or so litres in a suitable "potable" water container. I've been keeping fish almost nine years. That's basically your choices. A smaller fish tank, a reservoir, the large containers, a bucket or bin.

The large "reservoir" containers are available in a range of sizes and volumes so you can pick one to best suit your requirements. 25litres-30,000 litres. So you should get a perfect solution to your needs. They come fitted with outlets too!
