    It was shipped and shipping was almost the same price as the bin. You might be able to find something locally if you live near any feed stores.

    Another thing to note is that you may not want to fill this all the way up. A store by me used these for a live rock display and had an issue with one of them busting. Maybe they overfilled it? Who knows. I only keep mine 3/5 of the way full.

    Woah these are awesome! I hadn't ever ran across these. Too bad the price can't be lower. A lot of materials I assume.

    That’s some good info thanks. I can get the Rubbermaid stock tanks locally. I just liked the shape and deminsions of this better.

    The Buckhorn units will bow as the are not really made for water like the rubber made units.

    I’m in the very beginning stages of planning a fish room with a large system in it. I have something very specific I want to do with the “sump”. I’ve been trying to come up with some ready made containiers that would fit the space and and my needs. Starting to lean towards making a plywood sump, then I can customize it completely. I will probably still be callin geo to make me some sock holders though.
