i agree with the last poster-buy a bunch when you build a rack!
sterilite and rubbermaid are constantly redesigning there tubs.
has anybody considered the vision tubs? they are not as high as the shoeboxes so you can get more in the same amount of space,they have a smooth interior,i really like the fact there 18" long so you can keep hatchlings in them longer and i'm sure they will be around for a while.
the only drawback i see is that you have to pay shipping,but in the long run they may be cheaper,just a thought.have fun!

I had an awful problem finding 32 qts recently. I did find really nice 28's though at Target for $4.99 each. So many of the new designs are latch top and depending on the size of the snake when you slide them into a rack you've got a fairly big rectangular cut out at each end of the tub which I'm not impressed with. The only place I could find a decent sized tub with a regular smooth edge finish was the ones at Target last week.

Thanks for the advice, I will check out Target, I live behind Walmart and less than a mile from Target so neither is a problem. I have seen 28qt in different brands, with the latching lids etc. and have always worried I would get the home and they would be a little taller or shorter than the sterilites I am using and not fit in the rack correctly, anyone else try any other brands of tubs in a rack, make for sterilite tubs? Are they all the same size??
I went to target yesterday and they still had the 6 qt tubs. I picked up a couple in case something happens to one of the tubs in my baby rack.. Maybe I should stock on my some more. It looks like I should check all of my rack tubs and see if any of the others are going out of style.

When it comes to tubs, I like target's tub styles better than the ones walmart carries. Target has 15QT, 32QT, and 74QT that are all the same height which makes them all work in my rack so I can change it around at any time. Also those 6QT ones with the sturdy lids can slide into the same rack if you leave the lids on so the snakes cant get out. Thats 4 diff sizes all in 1 rack! The heat gradient works out fine also, but the tubs have to be pushed all the way back which doesnt look as nice. I need to go check my model #s and go buy a bunch of tubs of they are discontinuing them

I know it won't help the ones who are looking for replacement tubs for existing racks, but if you're planning to build a new rack with tubs in the 28-32 qt size range, you might want to consider the Vision V-35 tubs. They are thicker than the Sterilite tubs and have a smooth bottom. They also seem to have a slicker finish that residue doesn't adhere as well to. Translation: they are easier to clean.
They are priced competitive with the Sterilite tubs, but you will have to pay shipping. I am including a link to their website if you are interested.
