Hey Roger...welcome to the site/forum. Those are actually 8' livestock feeders I got from this site:http://www.2kreeksranch.com/ They were about $55.00 each not including shipping. Pretty cheap shipping too via Fedex and nice people (Larry). They are not as deep as I would like but they work for my purposes on this project (had to go verticle cuz of space). You will have to plug the pre drilled little drain holes with whatever you can come up with (I used rubber washers and a couple of sheet metal screws from Home Depot) unless you drill one of your tank return drains where the hole is already drilled.
