Insane idea! Would you do it?

Well i have this plastic storage thingy. Basically is is three plastic drawers one on top of the other and its clear except for the sides. (maybe i will get a poc sometime.) I was thinking (i wouldn't do this at the moment lol but maybe when i get my own house or something lol.) that i could make each drawer wait for it...A TANK! And filters and heaters could be fit into the back by simply cutting out holes where needed and VOILA insta tanks! Plus air pockets are esssential and they are there! Just leave the drawer open a teeeeeeeny bit and dont fill them up quite the whole way! And so you dont stress them out when feeding just open the drawer a little and when it comes to water chanegs just pull the drawer about halfway out and change!

Yeah so im sure my idea has flaws and like i said i dont think i will be doing it but what do you guys think would you really do it? (like you will actually try this not just saying you will) do you like the idea but dont think you would do it or dont like it at all? Vote on my poll of awesomeness!!!!!!!

Hmmm I think I know the containers you are talking about. I actually just bought one to store all my fish stuff in. The only thing is they seem really unstable like I could easily knock it over...

Not to mention that water is really heavy so when you pull them open water could just slosh around everywhere...

Cool idea, but I wouldn't try it. Mine, at least, are rather unstable and even when I pull open the drawers things fall out sometimes.

You can't do this with plastic frames, it's too unstable. But these drawers are possible with wooden/metal frames (my friend has one). Use rails beneath each drawer so not much energy is needed when you pull it out, thus water won't splash. You would need to calculate the weight of each drawer when pulled out so that the whole thing wouldn't tip over or have the frame fixed to the wall.
IMO, a shelf is much better and easier.

Yeah i agree with you all. It isn't the best thing to use for tanks I know,(it is cool though) it was just a crazy idea i came up with.
