That sound ok?
If you can get a plastic tank to fit I would definitely go this route. In my mind, the only reason to use stainless, or aluminum is to make a custom size/shape where plastic doesn't fit.

I'd agree with that and one of the best collections of standard plastic tanks can be found at International Marine Supplies
