    I'm not too sure, but I would personally not chance it. You can get new unused 5 gal buckets at Home Depot for 5 or 6 bucks. Or go to a local Deli and see if they can give you a bucket that mayo or some other food came in. Just clean it out and you'll be good to go.

    I personally wouldn't - you can go into a dollar store and get a 2.5gal bucket or a larger one as suggested above - the things I use for my tank haven't been previously touched by anything questionable - you never know and you don't want to find out it's not a good idea the hard way.

    I definitely, definitely agree. Some kitty litter has fragrances and junk that might be bad for the fishies... My personal fish buckets have never been used for anything but fish stuff.
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.
