It'd be much safer than glass and easier to put away when not needed. I'm still a little paranoid because of then 10gal.
I use Sterlite brand. I have two spawn tubs (4 gallon, not recommended for those new to spawning bettas), three 66 quart (16.5 gallon) tubs, one 30 gallon water storage tub and one 22 gallon tub I use for orange guppies, plants, and infusoria growth. I get mine from Walmart or King Soopers (Kroger or whatever it's called).
They are SOO much easier. I use 10 gallons on occasion and I have a 20 gallon and two 30 gallon tanks for grow out.
I think the problem is by using hot water some left over chemicals could have seeped out. I always rinse in hot water first then in cold water several times.
