Hi Aussie goldfish people!

I'm looking into getting a big plastic tub to have on hand as a QT / hospital tank. I understand the Koko's reccomendation is to make sure it is food safe, but I haven't been able to find any of the appropriate size that are labeled food safe (or any of the brands so readily available in the U.S.). I'm guessing regular plastic storage tubs are risky due top potential leaching chemicals?

What brands do you guys use? Where did you get them?

Any info would be helpful, thank you! :thumbup2:

Starmaid tubs are all food safe and come in a variety of different sizes. You should be able to find them at Kmart, Big W, etc.


If you have access to a catering or butcher supply place, you can find food safe tubs up to 250+ litres. I did know of a supplier, but I can't recall their name off the top of my head.
