Good storage for wet collections

Hello

Any suggestions for good storage of the smallest insects in wet collection? I'm looking for small vials or similar, preferably not much bigger than a data label.
Doesn't matter if it is glass or plastic.

Usually keep my specimens in dry collection, but the wet collection do seem to grow, and I need something different than the current solution.

And suggestions or links to solutions would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Rasmus, Denmark

2ml Starstedt tubes with the o-ring seals are good and you can get boxes to keep them in.

They can be found at a good price on eBay now and then.
