RubberMaid my butt

I went out and bought a 48 gallon Rubermaid top of the line container. I had water in it for about 4 months, I then drained it and moved it out of my garage and back to the sidewalk next to the wash room. Boom...Three days later in the middle of the night the seam gives way. Now I had a float valve on it to shut it off automaticly......The next day I see water all over the place...Man....I got the water bill and it was $25.00 over the normal bill. Can't win for loosing

That stinks. Was it a trash can? I would take it back to the store and get my money back.

i have used smaller ones and bigger ones nothing around that size. personally i would hit up monster fish keepers and look there. there are a few people on there i know who use plastic bins for temp fish tank. the admin over there has a bunch of them that are plumbed together for a auto wc system too.

i would check craigslist for some time of water storage container. i have some 240 gallons some 100 gallons for soaking wood and spawning livebearers and a few 20 gallons that i use for qt when i am in a crunch.

hahahahaha this made me laugh. Good idea. You'll save yourself a lot of headache with that plan.
Plastic Bins never work out for me. But, my teacher keeps one outside (not sure of the gallons) and has had Goldfish in there for 5 years... I personally think that's amazing- mine never last nearly that long!
