A tank was a large container of liquid.
In 2152, Doctor Phlox and Captain Jonathan Archer used a tank to super-hydrate Archer's pet dog Porthos, while the dog was undergoing surgery to replace his pituitary gland. (ENT: "A Night in Sickbay") Phlox also kept a Lyssarian Desert Larvae in a tank inside sickbay aboard Enterprise NX-01. (ENT: "Similitude")
The Hirogen had tanks in their trophy rooms aboard their warships. According to tricorder readings by Commander Chakotay in 2374, these tanks included some sort of enzyme which breaks down bones, muscle tissue, and meat from different species. Tuvok speculated it could be a method to denaturate their prey while Chakotay assumed it could be their dinner. (VOY: "Hunters", "Prey")
