A good cheap alternative is the intex snap set pools. They are $15 and come from 5ft up till 9ft. It is perfect for a temporary set up.

Tnx Cu455 , the only thing is they say it has soft walls and soft floor - so if I stick a pice of live rock I may get into a trouble

Walls are pretty strong. The floor isnt that great. I normally lay pond liner on the floor mostly for insulation. People use it as a doggy pool and it doesn't rip. You can put a tarp or use a container and put the rock in there. If you have a water mixing brute you can put that in the pool fill it with the rock and use a water pump to pump water from the pool to the garbage.

I have used it with fish no problem. II never tried with rocks.
