safe container?


Well-Known Member
I'll be moving my tanks shortly to my new house and was wondering if a rubbermaid 20g tote from walmart would be safe to store some water and mostly my LR in well its being transported? Ive got mainly 5g buckets with lids but i need something i can move a decent amount of water and rock in!

You need "food grade" totes to avoid any additives such as plasticizers leaching into the water. I *think* I've read that the Rubbermaid Brute totes fit that bill. I believe some folks have used them for sumps.
-hope so, I advised the Wife's cousin to use those for his tank move last week...
