only catch with black is that they will absorb the heat - which you probably don't want in QLD.
Can you get light green or cream - they tend to be pretty standard rainwater tank colours.

Presume it is a roto-mould or similar and UV stable ?
Most significant thing would be the material thickness.

> the size is as follows 1250*910*370mm and they are black in colour

the price is pretty good for the size if it is a decent thickness.

I used a commercial stock trough made here in Perth and it was good for the job.
In the $200 price bracket - it was nice and thick, and thus very rigid.
( 1250x600x450 FWIW ).

I just clarified with the supplier these can be provided in a green as well. they are roto-mould and are UV stable the wall thickness of it is 4.5mm do you think that would be thick enough?

yes, that seems pretty standard watertank thickness.
if it doesnt have a nice folded top, etc for strength then you will (probably) need to build a frame, not just a stand, but for $90 each (a similar but thinner product in a pond shop would be a few hundred $$$$$) you cant go wrong.

yea they are curved over at the top to create an lip as such I might go ahead and order some, sounds like they are a good buy by what you guys are saying and shouldn't be too hard to get rid of the excess I don't need
