Yes, the Gamma lids will fit a standard 5-gallon bucket, which this is. The Leaktite version of the Gamma bucket can be found on the homedepot.com by searching for Internet Part# 303808738
No, lids are sold separately. 5-gallon buckets have a standard diameter so any lid for a 5-gallon pail will fit. For the best seal, the 5-gallon screw-top lid is a good choice.
While we have not run specific tests on freezing temperatures, there is a stronger possibility of the bucket cracking if the contents freeze. A heavier bucket, like a .90 mil, will be better. We don't sell the .90 mil in black, however.
The 5-gallon buckets are about 14.5" tall. The top bucket would rest on a lid which might add 1/2", give or take. A stack of two bucket should be no more than 29-30" tall.
You want to make sure that the lid either has a gasket (will explicitly state in description) or is the screw-top lid. The gasket lids are reusable, however once the tear tab is engage/removed the lid is no longer leak proof. Any lid for a 5-gallon bucket will fit the 5-gallon Leaktite bucket.

I've had my first buckets (12) for 3 years, and use them for a hydroponics system. I have not noticed them getting brittle. I now am running 22 buckets.
I bought about 60 buckets for my above ground garden. The black or white ones are great. The home depot ones are ok, just not as durable. The handles give out to soon.
