  Does anyone have any idea as to where I can find a large plastic tub for use in a shedding system?  Or will it be easier/cheaper  to make it out of wood? Huh

The only place I've seen them is mail order.  This place advertises Fiberglass Soft Crab Shedding Tanks,, 4' x 8' x 1' for $187.00.

  Thanks Crabpop, but I already went there after I saw the reference to that site in the "wanted" section of the forum.  I think I'm just gonna build a tank, but thanks for the advice anyway. Grin

Go to your local tractor dealer/feed store and get a 50 gal rubber maid watering stock tank.  They work great for up to a dozen peelers at a time.

If ya have a supply of water, like on a pier, the stock tank works great (or your gona have to build a filter).  In place of the drain plug use a 90 degree fitting and some plastic pipe. Come outta the drain hole with a 90 and use a piece of pipe that is as long as the water is to be deep. Use alot of Silacone sealer. Drill a bunch of 1/4" holes in the top 1" or 2 of the standpipe.  Get a cheapo water pump and a hose long enough to reach below the lowest water you get at your pier.  The trick is to put a hose nozzel on the hose from the pump so that you can regulate the amount of water coming into the stock tank and make a spray so that the water gets max oxygen.
