odd sump shape

sooo....the latest sump dilemna is: the space where i want to keep my sump is very limited in space, and the largest plastic container i can find that will fit in the cramped space is the Rubbermaid Pets Scoop'n Store Pet Food Storage - 20.75"W X 11.75"D X 24"H, just over 20 g. capacity i figured. Is it alright to have such a deep sump, with little surface area? I want to run my Aquac remora in the sump, will it work alright? Does anyone know if this will hold it's shape, filled with water?

the field of unpopular music is wide open

As long as you have a skimmer running on air rather than ozone, surface area isn't a big deal. You'll have plenty of oxygen.

Rubbermaid stuff is usually pretty good about standing up to water. Straight sides may bow out a bit, but it should hold and not break.
