Tin Bucket

I was at a hobby store and found a cute green plaid tin bucket that would fit really nicely in my tank. I was wondering if this would be safe to put in my tank or if it would rust or give off dangerous chemicals. It looks like the metal's nearly all sealed under the lacquer, but there are a few places that you can see just a touch of unpainted metal showing.

It would probably be okay, but I would boil it and put in a tank or something with nothing alive before adding it to your tank.

I am under the impression that metal can kill your fish, never to use it in aquariums, I wouldn't do it, or if you do I would research it much more

I ended up putting a terracotta pot in the tank and using the bucket as a food caddy. It would look adorable in the tank, but I don't want to risk it. Thanks for the info though, I'll avoid metal in the future.
