What caddies can I use for a DL580 G5?

I am currently looking at buying 8-11 caddies for my DL580 G5 which I have bought recently, off ebay, and I was wondering where I could get caddies for it, which don't break the bank, (less than £1 .50 each would be great) which I can get in the UK, where could I look for these, as the cheapest caddy i can find is 99p each but it is a Dell 2.5" caddy, which I am unsure whether it is compatable or not. The cheapest one I can finds which I know is compatable is £2.15 each, which is breaking my budget a tad, any help would be lovely. thanks in advance

While I can't offer any suggestions on where to find the old G5 drive carriers, I can say that the Dell parts are not compatible

As you bought the server on ebay why not search for the drive caddies there? A lot of vendors that sell used servers also sell compatible caddies. For sure you have to calculate higher prices - here in germany the price for one caddy is about 10-15€.
