Lol, I have one that I emptied and cleaned and is now holding extra gravel. I am also keeping it just in case I need a quick temporary home should something happen.
I need to re-check it, but on the bottom there will be the recycle symbol with a number in it. Make sure it is the number 5. It seems a bit flimsy to me, the sides scratch too easily, and the sides bow a wee bit when full of water, but it was able to hold water for a whole week without any issues, so it'll be fine.
Getting the sticker off sucks, especially since it leaves behind the goop. A bit of cooking oil on a wash cloth should be able to get it off. After I did that, I cleaned mine with soap and water (yeah, I know, I know) because I had no vinegar or bleach on hand. But, I used literally one drop of soap, and that thing is roughly 2 gallons. I rinsed super well with a lot of hot water. I think I went as far as to rinse it like 3 times a day for several days just to be sure.
IMO, it's not a good fish house, because it is much taller than it is wide. If I were to use it for aquatic puruposes, it'd probably be to QT plants, or maybe as a little shrimp tank.
