Looking for a couple of items.

1. A rectangular shaped container to use for an RO reservoir for auto-topoff approximately 20 to 30 gallon size - taller than its width. Right now I am using a Rubbermaid Brute garbage can - I would like to use a rectangular container to fit inside a custom furniture piece I am making, sick of looking at a garbage can beside my tank

2. A clear (not just translucent) bucket about 5 gallons or so size, or similar cylindrical or rectangular (vertical) container made of clear plexiglass or glass - to replace my bucket refugium which is an old salt bucket - I want to be able to see into the fuge.

Even though money may be a consideration, have you looked into making your own ATO container ? Something that size could be made from 3/8 acrylic if you eurobrace the top, or 1/4"/6mm glass

Cell Cast Acrylic Aquarium Calculator (http://diyfishkeepers.com/AcrylicThicknessCalculator.htm)

Aquarium Glass Thickness Calculator (http://www.theaquatools.com/building-your-aquarium)

GARF's build your own custom tank page (http://www.garf.org/tank/buildtank.asp) Includes calculator, albeit thicknesses are quite a bit exaggerated

Yes I will DIY if I have to but would prefer not to given time constraints
