The problem with using a tote is the sides will push out and break anything that you siliconed inside to make sections. There is one on YouTube that andrewspistol tryed to make a few months ago and I'm not sure how it turned out. Basically all it is is one of those s drawer towers that drain into each other then gets drainded into a tank or container just to be pumped back up. Personally I would look for 29 gallon myself and add sections into it.

For the heater you'll need 500 watts but that may change depending on where you live. On my 6' tank I run a 200 watt threw the summer but once winter hits I add 300 watts. But I live in Ohio and on the winter it will get below freezing
