I am looking at getting this 15 gallon plastic sink for when I do tank tear downs and I was wondering what everybody else uses. The sink is 50 bucks so I just wanted to know if anyone uses something cheaper? I thought about getting some totes from wally world but I think they would bow out from the water.


TIA for the help

Rubbermaid makes a black/yellow tote that is incredibly thick. If I were going tote that is the way I would go. I have used a regular heavy tote several times and even over night and worked great.
May I ask what you are tearing down??? You have beautiful tanks.

Thanks for the input I am not tearing any tank down at the moment, but it seems easier than just yanking out all of the plants and re-doing every 6 months. The low tank 100 gallon is going through some kind of funk as I keep losing fish. I am think it is the substrate thats gone bad (its about 3 years old) but I dont know. We have these sinks here at work and the seem to be what I need just looking for everbody else's input.

$10 plastic bins from Target or any other store. The bowing is not an issue really. 25 gallon size is what I have used to hold fish for months. They come with a lid too.

I got a bunch of those Home Depot Orange Paint buckets. They hold a lot of weight and are fairly cheap; about $5 each. When I got my 90 gallon tank, I helped tear it down to move it to my house and those buckets housed the fish and gravel for transport. I use them all the time for cleaning and storing old gravel. I used to use them for water changes until I got my Python system.

I happen to come across this pond when I went to get some clay pots for the big tank. This pond is gonna be great for Re-Scapes and whatnot... I try and completely re-do(except the substrate) the high tech tank about every 3-6 months depending on how much it turns into a jungle and when I want to devote a whole day to it LOL.

Jackson was at Lowes today and noticed a new storage tub. I think it was 18.00 thick and heavy ribbed side walls very sturdy and heavy. Had a yellow top black body.
