PetSmart - $2 per gallon tank w/ hood & light included

Petsmart is having their supposed "biggest sale of the year" anniversary sale.

$2 per gallon tanks with hood and lights included. Not too bad of a deal, I'd say.

http://pets.petsmart.com/local-ad/

Other items on sale, but haven't looked through them to see if there are any good deals:

Went there today and was able to pick up 11 Otos for $11. Never buy fish there, but it was too good of a deal to pass up.

I love their $1 sale for Otos! I always lose a few I the first day, after that they are golden! I think it's just the stress of shipping and several new environment. I may have to go pickup another dozen for my 55!

I picked up three otos last time they were on sale, and all three have survived thus far (through two tank moves AND a bout of ich in the span of two weeks, no less). They are certainly troupers...last ones I got didn't make it a week, but they never looked nearly as healthy as my current otos, in the store or in my tank.

There will be a 10gal in my immediate future, definitely. Late fathers day gift to myself.

Dang, I missed it. And I like our local PetSmart... They usually have healthy things, and the staff is fairly knowledgeable. I haven't yet gotten a sick fish from them, and their bettas are usually healthy.

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.

I just bought a 5g Fluval Edge yesterday on sale there for $30 off! I've wanted one for so long, even making trips there to see if one came in as a return. Getting one on sale is good enough though. And they started carrying a larger variety of packaged plants, so I picked up some staurogyne repens and a betta to go in the new tank. The fish in the display tanks at mine can be hit or miss. The betta though, you can usually get a nice healthy one. The one my daughter picked out last night (a gorgeous blue VT) was on sale for $2.

I was just at the Mililani one yesterday and the edge was on sale. I don't remember the exact price, but you can call. They had the two dollar a gallon poster up, but didn't pay much attention to it because I was there to buy cat food.

Looks like it may include some 'odd' sizes too, my local had a 40 breeder marked $80

I picked up the 40 gallon breeder with light and versatop for $83 after tax this past weekend. I'm not setting it up until we move in our new apartment next month but I'm getting everything together. My stand I order for it from petco arrived at my apartment today, im going to pick it up from the office when I get off as it wieghs 74lbs lol. It was a great deal though at $135 with free shipping for a nice solid stand for a 40 gallon breeder. I will let you know how solid it is after I put it together but from what I have researched and the wieght of it, it is a super solid stand. http://www.petco.com/product/101395/...ium-Stand.aspx
I just realized it is now on sale for $152 so I really got it for a steal last week(=
