    Food grade plastic barrels as outdoor tanks

    I found a great local resource for brand new food grade plastic barrels at great prices. $2 for 5 gallons. $15 for 35 gallons, and $25 for 55 gallons. These have never been used and are sold as rain barrels, so they should be safe for raising fish. My question is whether anyone has used taller containers like these for raising guppies and other fish outdoors, and if so, how did this work out for you. I know the 5 gals will work fine, like the 5 gal spring water bottles I use, but the big ones are mighty tall. Still, those prices are tempting! Whatcha think, folks?

    These are near Tampa Florida if anyone else is interested.
