Holding tank location

I need to replace the small (3 gal) holding tank in my forward head. This is the largest rigid tank that will fit in the forward bilge. We want to increase the size of the holding tank and can think of two possible solutions:

a) flexible holding tank located in the same area in the bilge as the old one

b) place a rigid holding tank in a different location that is higher than the head outlet. We have several possible locations.

Has anyone had success with the flexible tanks?

What problems will I run into if I place the tank higher than the head outlet? Will the head pump get the "bi-product" to the tank?
