Home depot has big heavy duty bins for construction supplies that are
almost a quarter inch thick too.

I have two of the 15 (I'm guessing) sterite tubs that I kept banded
killies and brown mystery snails in this summer. They were mostly a
holding place for plants, and the killies and snails kept them
fertilized. They worked great and never bowed.

That reminds me, I should really go get the water out of those.. it's
currently freezing-in-night and thawing during the day, but the
thawing won't last much longer :-)
