Aging water & supply cleaning curiosity? O.o

Okay I currently keep my water in jugs, which isn't all that bad if all I had was the smaller tanks. Instead I also have a 20g and plan on turning an old 20gL into a project making which in the end makes the jug situation a bit of a pain.

What would be a good container to keep and age water in, and how often and with what should I clean that container with?

And what is a good solution to make/keep made for dipping/cleaning your nets and (for the small tanks) turkey basters in, like for going between tanks and needing to clean it quickly.

Get one of those 200L water barrels or those 60l food barrels and you will be sweet. the most important part is to make sure it is food grade

- your local gardening store should have them in stock.

pop an air line to keep the water aerated so that the water ages faster.

just give the container a quick rinse with tap water once in a while. though you don't really have to clean it at all.
