    I like the idea of a non stress full experience for the fishes. If you take the bigger pieces of decor out, you could keep the fishes in there and siphon out the gravel until it's clean. The fish stay unstressed.

    You do realize this is over a year old and you have been replying to many old and solved threads that have been resolved at least a year ago? Just seems silly to me.

    I'm working on it, closing old threads.

    As this one is not so old, and I believe the OP may have changed username, this one will remain open, for the time being.

    Hey, at least there's some activity here on the AC now

To reinforce the top of the bin (if needed) I cut a hole (flap) in the cover for access and the cover along the perimeter helps keep these rubbermaid from bowing.

    A member here recently got 55g heavy duty bins to hold her fish. She's doesn't even have a top on them to hold it, only a screen top. She's actually had her fish in tubs since October and is slowly setting her new tanks up after moving houses. Just to give you some confidence while cleaning the tank out.
    I agitate even a two inch area of gravel, it literally makes the entire forty gallon cloudy. I''m afraid that if I don't do something, over time it will stress my fish and take them from me prematurely. Since I am confined to the room anywhere from 19-20 hours a day (chronic pain), these fish mean a lot to me. Both individually and as a group. They have their own personalities, add color and not a day goes by that they don't elicit a smile or chuckle. They also give me a reason to push through the pain.

    I am relatively new, and then I didn't know about age labels here.
