Default ATO Reservoir

Hi All,

I'm relatively new to the saltwater hobby and I am looking for any suggestions/recommendations in acrylic ATO reservoirs.

I'm a bit of a stickler when it comes to aesthetics and I'd like my under-cabinet to look clean as possible. I currently have a IM Nuvo 20 and am looking for a reasonably priced reservoir which would hold around 2 gallons or less of water (space is limited, even a couple of litres would be ideal).

Can anyone suggest a Canadian fabricator or Canadian friendly suppliers?

Thanks

I use a number of the "Rubbermaid Square Canister" from walmart. They're cheap and look decent. You can get 1 gallon ones for $5.

those really don't look half-bad! thanks for sharing this.
any acrylic reservoir I've seen on the market is a minimum of $150 - this is definitely a great option.

Not in Canada for sure, but last time I ordered from these guys it only took 3 days.

J&L has some trigger systems reservoirs which are aesthetically pleasing.

Buy a 2 gallon aquarium? I have a 5 gallon under my tank and it looks pretty clean.

Something like this? Its 5 gallons but looks slick and isn't much...
