Yeah, going to agree with everyone. They're pretty much the best ever. I have two larges and they handle being heated just wonderfully. Although.. I'm a little envious of everyone's tanks. Mine are so bare in comparison.

I have a empty critter keeper but the thing has terrible water marks and lime scale it looks horrid. I think they are nice for keeping fish though and very cheap. The only problem i find is that they are plastic and that scares me incase it breaks.

haha everyone has different strengths and weaknesses...24 pounds is nothing to me, i move between 800 and 2000 boxes at work every day, ranging in weight anywhere from 15 to 50 pounds each, but if you asked me to sit in a chair in an office for eight hours a day my back would be screaming at me in the kind of curse words that would turn a street-walker into a nun out of sheer horror for humanity :-p

My Scolosis really hurts when I lift 24 to 40 pounds twice a week. A few different buckets at a time.

depending on how close your tanks are to the nearest sink, you might just want to get a roll of thick-gauge airline tubing and attach the cylinder from your gravel vac to it, and vacuum your tanks directly into the sink, thereby saving a whole lot of water-carrying (interesting note, in japanese schools, it's a common punishment for disobedient students to make them walk up and down the hall carrying buckets of water. i don't, however, know if it's just meant as corporal punishment from the weight of the water, or if the water has some significance.)

I am using one presently and I love it. They are nice and big and cheap. I highly recommend it if you have little kids or cousins or something running around. Like my brother has 2 bettas and he keeps them in a critter keeper and its perfect for him because if he drops it it wont break because its not glass. ( Dropping while Cleaning it I mean).

I'm in a dorm, so what I typically do is remove the fish, empty at least a gallon using whatever container I have on hand, and then carry it to the kitchen. Makes it much easier that way.

1 US gallon of fresh water weighs about 8.34 lbs.... So a 3 gallon critter keeper weighs about 25 lbs.

I just pick it up and carry it to the sink.
