Google "Beanie Baby Boxes"...I'll be getting some soon. For now I use gallon pickle jars and quart mason jars.

Depends on how many spawns you have. Get at least 100 for a start.

Beanie Baby Boxes?! I would have never thought of that. I think my aunt use to buy those all the time during the Beanie Baby craze (she had a room devoted to them :).

I collect used 2 ltr square plastic drink bottles (from mineral water or what ever - about 10cm x 10cm x height) which I then cut in half. When fry need to be bottled, they temporarily go in them. It's very cheap - better than spending $300. Since you're not planning on breeding anytime soon, you can start collecting them.
I must warn you though, doing daily wc on these is time consuming specially when you have a large spawn.
