I'm not sure but the lfs probably just wants you to buy the overflow, my lfs does this to me constantly. Normally if you want to do something a certain way you can find a way to make it work (although the lfs would have you think otherwise). Also be careful with the rubbermaids, they lose a lot of integrity when completely full of water, I use them as qt tanks sometimes but they get really flimsy when they're full (unless you bought some really nice ones). If you fill them only half full they are a lot stronger, still, never try to move it when it has water in it, wouldn't be pretty if that sucker broke on you, especially if you live in a 3rd floor apartment like me (people downstairs wouldn't be too happy about their ceiling...).
