Any experience with 300g rubbermaid/galvanized stock tanks?
I'm actually looking to start a "pond" for a couple smaller turtle pairs, and I was hoping to do this with a big stock tank in my new (new is a relative term) basement. I saw a brand new 300g plastic stock tank at an extremely cheap price recently, and decided to look into it a bit more. I looked online for reviews, and I kept reading about how these things will form cracks, and eventually start leaking. I then called the store to see if they still had them at the price I saw, and the guy I talked to basically flat out told me not to buy one, due to how many he has to return for that very reason. I then started looking into the galvanized steel stock tanks, and I got the impression that these actually leaked more often than the rubbermaid stock tanks.
I'm just wondering what everyone's experience is with these stock tanks, if you guys have heard of any problems with cracks or leaks, and any recommendations for something similar with fewer problems? Much appreciated!
