Go to a trade show, and get a tank used for display, often times you will save alot of money. The vendors love to sell thier displays at the shows, less to pack up and bring back. We picked ours up at ISS New England.
Buy a sheet of .25 polypropylene, a Leister hot air heat welder, a few polypro rods and make a couple yourself! The 4x8 sheet will cost $75 and you can probably make 2 for sure. The welder costs $300, but you can immediately sell it and recoup most of that money. Maybe you spend $150 and get $800 worth of diptanks.
If new is too pricey, keep your eyes open for used ones in the classified section of this forum, or at
www.digitsmith.com the problem with using a trash can or something is your using way more chemicals to get the level right, so in the long run, it's cheaper to just buy one made for the job.
