several places to buy them here in Cebu..  but I thought you are in Hawaii?   If you want to buy IBC tote just head south from SM Seaside on SRP and keep eye on right side. ..  or on right side headed north on nat hwy through consolacion.

This is part of luzon right?

I am in hawaii at the moment

Im looking online  close to ilocos norte

I want to build one for my old friend 

It will also be off grid solar and battery😁

For the pump

I have been keeping tropical fish for 57 years both as hobby and running a business for while. Both breeding and showing. I only have 4 large aquariums and a pool these days.

A word of warning on these containers. Most have been used for chemicals. No amount of washing or scrubbing will get it out. You need to buy new ones. Many of the Koi keepers use them to store water to dissipate chlorine.

I used to have marine tanks in the UK so I learned all about all that stuff years ago.. Here I have a pond that was set up originally for Koi.. 
These days it has about 500 Tilapia.. Im very busy withj other stuff and my filter pump went tits up about a year ago.. The fish are still in there and I still just about have time to feed em!
Tilapia are tough MOFO`s.

Lol me too. When did you start? What was the name of that guy that said we need to use ionizers and all those gadgets to keep them? Where was he, Croydon?

I put the Tilapia fry in about 2 years ago.. 2 fatalities but at least 200 more fish since then..Still no filter.. I just chuck in a bit of food once or twice a week.
Im pretty sure that these types of ponds keeps down the Mozzy population.

No, I meant I kept marines in the UK. Used to run a shop and went up to Heathrow to pick up consignments.
