 Dear  All,
 
 I  am  planning  to  get  a  plastic  container  (Sintex)  which  is  an  open  top.
 In  a  size  4  x  2  x  2  or  bit  bigger  .
 
 Want  to  place  it  in  by  balcony.  Have  various  plans  to  control  the  sun  light,  filter  ECT.
 My  concern  is,  can  we  keep  fish  in  a  plastic  container  with  some  plants  .
 
 A  LFS  person  said  this  is  harm  full  to  the  fish  because  the  plastic  release  some  kind  do  heat  Energy.  Though  of  checking  and  sharing  with  our  IAH  friend  on  this  subject.
 
 When  he  said  this  is  harmful  to  the  fish  I  just  gave  up  the  idea  right  away,  but  it  is  still  eating  my  brain  to  find  out  the  right  reason  if  any.  
 
 Pls  give  your  views,  information  and  comment  ,thanks.

 Plastic  tanks  should  not  be  a  problem.  
 We  store  water  in  overhead  sintex  tanks,  and  we  drink  this  water.  If  we  can  drink  the  water  stored  in  plastic  tank,  fishes  can  live  in  it.
 The  only  problem  is  that  a  plastic  tank  can  heat  too  much.  If  you  can  control  sunlight  on  that  tank  it  should  solve  the  problem.
 A  LFS  will  never  suggest  this  as  it  will  eat  into  his  sale  of  glass  tanks.
 Search  this  forum,  some  members  have  outside  plastic  tanks  and  they  seem  to  be  okay.
 To  be  on  safe  side,  start  with  plants,  and  introduce  fishes  after  some  time.

 yes  water  gets  more  warmer  in  a  plastic  container  than  in  a  glass  tank.  But  of  course  the  size  of  the  tank  is  large  and  you  can't  get  the  water  hot  quick  for  the  size  you're  suggesting.
 
 the  point  on  water  reacting  with  plastic  is  wierd.

 To  rule  out  everything,  I  would  go  for  a  used  tank.
 
 But  note  that  black  tanks  might  have  huge  variation  of  temparatures,  As  they  absorb  heat.
