Default 10 gallon secondary fermentor

What does everyone use to ferment in the secondary for a 10 gallon batch size. I will use a 20 gallon restaurant/food quality plastic container with lid and airlock for primary. But I would like to dryhop and condition further in the secondary but I read that plastic is not good for a secondary fermentor. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Primary: 1st AG Pale Ale
Secondary: Empty
Kegged: Wellington British Pale Ale
Bottled: H. E. Pils, Krick's IPA

What kind of plastic? Look for a number within a triangle.
So far, I've had more experience thinking than I've had don't think they are mutually exclusive, do you?

72 batches so far,
48 wine, mostly Loquat, peach, plum, prickly pear
23 beers and ciders
1 sauerkraut
1 Tequila, from a prickly pear wine experiment that didn't work. I call it "Prickly Heat"
