You may want to somehow seal or line the tub. We used an old trough as a fish tank and the galvanized metal leached into the water. Needless to say, we lost all the fish. ;
It will look real good for about six months but it will rust galvanized doesn't hold up like it did back when I was a kid. I did this it rusted I was very disappointed. I had to change it at one year it was a disaster by then. At six months it started rusting. Good luck. I even sealed it when I installed it.
