Here's the really fun part of the past few days shopping the superstores. . . My wife know's I"m looking for a powerhead / additional flow pump. She found one on a clearance endcap, and showed it toe me. It was not a brand for which I was looking, but I looked at it anyway, as it was only $15.00, for a pretty high flowing unit.
Once home, I open the box and realize I"m missing some parts. I keep looking, and realize the pump does not look like the pictures. Then I realize I'm holding a Marineland Penguin 550, with prefilter kit, some poor soul put in the wrong box!! This is a $50 item!

I'm not sure how it works with Petco- I didn't ask the manager. I did go to another location, but they only had a very small section of items clearanced-out. I really didn't see anything that wouldn't involve another project- but I did get a couple of T5 HO bulbs for $4 each... someday I'll be building a T5 HO light now
