If the tank is drilled, then you simply plumb with bulkheads. If not, you will need a HOB (Hang on back) overflow. I'm currently using a CPR HOB overflow with an aqualifter pump to ensure I don't lose siphon. This is where you get into the wonderful world of gallons per hour for return pumps, overflows, and headloss.

You could clean it with bleach and let it air dry until the smell is gone. Then rinse it out again for good measure.

Could I do it out of Rubbermaid tubs because my tank I was going to use I can't because it doesn't hold water.

Don't worry about that right now. Work on getting the tank setup and running.
