Question Storage container for a tank

So I was wondering if you could use a storage container as tank. Like a q-tank almost. As I dunno if Elvis will always have sbd issues,so i was thinking of putting him in a smaller (not as tall) tank. They dont really make fish tanks like that lol,so i found this perfect size storage tub. It would be like 3.75 gallons. Course Id have to leave a lil bit out for air. Would i need to poke holes in the lid or no? I have no idea...anyone??

Well i cant seem to poke a hole in it lol. Im afraid of cracking it anyways. So I am gonna go look for a reptile tank. Pretty cheap I think....I just lowered his water to see how he does,and hes alot happier now. So definetly a shorter tank.
