Does anyone know where to get cheap tanks because in the uk, well Northern Ireland anyway its impossible to get cheap tanks.. to get a decent sized tank such as 250L your talking around £500-600+ which is crazy compared to what you an get in the likes of america.
you can get tanks made by Clearseal but they only sell to trade and at pets at home the biggest they get is 36x12x15 and i was hoping for at least 6 foot. If anyone knows somewhere in Northern Ireland that sells cheap tanks or somewhere that can post them cheap let me know please.
I no longer live in the UK, but I do recall "the loot" if it's still in publication. Like a paper craigslist that you have classifieds in. I'd definitely check there as second hand tanks are usually a great gold mine. Also try and configure Ebay to only look for local dealers, then you may be able to find someone in your immediate area.
Failing that, try and find a local newspaper with a classifieds section, check it each week to find if anyone is selling.
Gumtree is another option. a 6 foot is relatively rare so a custom job might be your best bet.
Buying a used tank might be a good option for you.
The below site often has some used tanks listed in the UK:
