Bait shop Inspired tank
Recently I stopped at a gas station and while I was walking around I heard running water. I instantly knew they had some kind of fish tank. I went over there and saw that instead of fancy aquariums and bait tanks they had taken those big plastic tub sinks on legs that you sometime see in laundry rooms. I thought this was a great way to get a medium sized tank for relatively little cost.
I was wondering what everyone thought of this and if you could possibly cut out a section and replace it with plexi glass kind of like a ply wood tank?
Here is a link to a tub similar to the ones I saw

It is possible for a window to be cut out and replaced with a piece of acrylic. The sealant would need to be a substance that bonds well with plastic. Silicone wont work

They have a drain hole in place already.
Stick in a riser for surface skimming, and continuous fill along the top. They are a breeze to empty completely, and sterilize.
