Help with tupperware container tank sizes!

OK, so I'm thinking about guppy breeding, and for my setup, I need plastic tanks. So, I thought...well, I could just use tupperware containers, cuz i know people have used them before, and it'll save a lot of money. And i needed a 5 gallon, 2 10 gallons, and a 20 gallon. I easily found the 20 gal. and the 5 gal., but I CANNOT FIND the 10 gal. without it being one of those 6 inch tall ones. The closest i can find is a 56qt, which is like 14 gal. Normally, I wouldn't care, but they don't fit on the shelf size i would use! Anyways, if anybody could find a CLEAR, around 10 GALLON SIZED, tupperware container, i would be thanful!!!!

I can't be of much help here but i also breed guppies and just set up a rack. I had though of going with plastic containers but decided against it. I've been buying a few tanks at a time cost wise I'm not seeing a huge difference. Other than that my best thing was going to stores walmart, kmart, big lots ad just walking around measuring containers, you may not find your exact size but you a find something close. I've seen a lot of people use set ups with 1 gallon plastic or glass jars for guppies.

Thanks for the info! If I do this (unlikely), I probably would just go to Walmart and check out sizes. BTW, the reason I would choose tupperware over the regular glass aquariums that they sell in pet stores is that they NEED to be plastic, because I took inspiration from a video I saw on Youtube, and I am going to use a unique way of draining the tanks. But for that, I need to drill holes, and the glass would just shatter.
