My water ( from a well) is really soft. I'm looking for about a 40 gallon plastic, acrylic, or glass tank or tub to hold half of a future 80 gallon aquarium's change water. I will run a power head in this holding container for a couple of days to bring the water's pH up to 6.6 or so. My pH is around 5.5 out of the faucet, but after running a rio for a few days it brings it right up. Also to tweak the near zero GH
, and to add potassium sulphate etc.
Has anyone seen a solid plastic tub or such that I might use at a Home Depot or some such place? Any alternative ideas?
I see that Oceanic makes a (near) cube sized 37 gallon which would work fine but I imagine is spendy. My dimensions could be a little less than 2 feet square - maybe 1.5 feet square as two feet square is 60 gallons. But also it could be a little taller and less wide, like 18 to 20 inches wide so I can hide it under the stand I'm going to build or buy for this future four foot wide 80 gallon tank which I have my eye on. I might just have a friend make me a fiberglass tub, if the price is right. Thanks. Bob
