 Hello,  
 
 I've  heard  that  the  normal  Domestic  Sintex  Water  Tanks  is  not  recommended  to  keep  fishes.  (Though,  ive  seen  few  people,  keeping  them  to  breed  &  rear  livebearers  with  top  lid  removed).  
 
 Well,  i  found  two  other  products  by  Sintex  (I  guess,  every  city  have  Sintex  distributors  and  it  is  easily  available  )  that  is  used  for  commercial  purpose.  
 
 Can  some  one  let  me  know  if  the  following  products  are  recommended  for  garden  ponds,  or  rearing  fishes.  They  seems  to  be  sturdy  and  durable  since  they  are  made  for  industrial  purpose.  
 
 a)  ELECTROPLATING  /  PICKLING  TANKS  (This  comes  in  about  25  models  with  storage  capacity  from  100  to  2100  Lt)  
 
 b)  Troughs  (This  comes  in  about  9  models  with  storage  capacity  from  240  to  1200  Lt)
 
 More  details  can  be  found  in  
 http://www.sintex-plastics.com/industrial/index.htm  
 
 I  have  no  idea  about  the  pricings.  But,  i  feel  they  might  be  costlier.  Both  the  products  are  rectangular  and  seems  ideal  for  outdoor  fish  rearing.  
 
 Suggestions  please..........?

 Sintex  drums  should  be  fine  to  keep  fish,  as  long  as  the  opening  at  the  top  is  not  very  narrow.  The  idea  is  to  have  the  maximum  surface  area.  Secondly,  it  will  be  the  most  unsuited  for  fish  like  tetras.  Good  for  fishes  like  Oscars  or  even  live  bearers  that  prefer  to  swim  near  the  surface.

 The  electroplating/pickling  tanks  seem  to  be  a  great  option.  These  will  certainly  be  TOUGH  as  they  are  seamless.
 
 Please  PM  me  if  you  are  able  to  locate  a  dealer  and  the  price  you  pay  for  one.
 
 Thanks,
 Arup

 Hi
 
      Like  the  DOFF  BASKETS  they  have  a  bigger  opening  at  the  top  the  sizes  also  sound  good  for  fish  rearing  purpose.  A  lot  of  options  there.  It  was  funny  how  when  I  heard  sintex  i  tought  of  the  bis  black  overhead  water  tanks.Din't  know  they  had  all  these  other  kinds  of  containers!!  
    A  lot  of  good  choice  there.
 
    Regards
       Harshal.

 The  opening  of  a  normal  water  tank  is  small,  it  will  not  allow  for  proper  oxygen  exchange.
 Cut  the  top  of  so  that  the  top  opening  becomes  larger.  Plastic  heats  and  cools  very  quickely,  keep  it  in  a  place  which  does  not  get  too  much  direct  sunlight.
 Rest  should  be  okay.

 Electroplating  /  pickling  tanks  or  the  doff  baskets  are  the  best  bet.
   Thumb Up  
 
 I  feel  light  colored  ones  shud  definitely  suit  your  requirements  and  regarding  the  availability  ,  u  can  approach  any  textile  or  garment  unit  in  tiruppur.  These  pickling  tanks  and  doff  baskets  are  mostly  used  by  them.  They  buy  them  in  bulk  quantities  and  are  more  familiar  with  the  dealers  of  Sintex.
 
 Provide  good  shading  facilities  and  the  bigger  the  capacity,  better  it  is  for  your  fishes.

 Happened  to  get  in  touch  with  Sintex  co  in  chennai.
 
 For  electroplating  tanks  they  are  quoting  Rs.14  per  litre,  hence  based  on  the  capacity  requirements,  u  can  calculate  the  final  price.
 
 But  again  they  dont  take  any  orders  lesser  than  50nos  Thumb Down  
 
 Might  be  u  shud  get  in  touch  with  some  dealer  nearer  to  your  place  of  residence  and  negotiate  the  numbers,  price  etc...

 Thats  pretty  steep.  I  remember  something  like  Rs  2/-  per  litre  for  a  normal  Sintex  tank  (not  the  electroplating  tanks).
 
 I  have  a  100  lt  drum  from  Metro  for  "storing  drinking  water"  Smile  which  is  similar  to  trevor's;  works  out  a  bit  more  reasonably.  Of  course  its  not  as  tough  as  a  sintex  tank.
 IMO  cutting  the  top  off  a  sintex  tank  is  a  good  idea.

 Electroplating  tanks  are  far  better  compared  to  normal  sintex  tanks.  Hence,  the  difference  in  price..  Very Happy

 We  are  going  to  store  only  water  and  fishes  in  these  tanks,  will  somebody  please  enlighten  me  as  to  why  do  we  need  elcetroplated  tanks  or  more  costly  ones.  Very Happy  
 If  ordinary  sintex  tanks  are  good  enough  for  us  to  store  drinking  water  fishes  can  also  live  in  them.
 The  only  precaution  in  my  mind  that  tank  should  be  large  wnough  so  that  water  does  not  heat  ot  cool  rapidly.

 Seems  this  would  minimise  my  expenses  on  Cement  Tanks  and  easy  for  shifting  if  relocated.....
