need help finding something

Im looking for a plastic water storage tank for my fish room. 175 gal ( or so ), 34" or less, foot print. I found them on the internet but shipping is RIDICULOUS.

Try a farm supply store, or a couple big plastic garbage cans.

Always curious.

Try finding a local source for rain barrels. Our sams has them and they look like they would be perfect.

Home Depot has rain barrel with drain spickets . Heavy duty and don't look bad. Spray tanks at a farm supply are about 150gl.

There a place that either makes them or is a dist. in Addision I believe on Grace st near North Ave.? They have them in the yard and you can see them from the road.
