They looked to be stockpiling 10s on the shelf last time I was at petco about a week ago. Like, turned so they could get more of them on the shelves than normal. I already got my 40 breeder, but I could use a 10gal or two.

Do you need to be a petco rewards member to get the sale or can I just walk in and grab one?

They never have the sales on 2.5g, 5g, or 20L tanks. Only regular sucky tank.

The 20L are part of every sale, the 2.5 and the 5g are not part of the sale for obvious reasons. What do you mean by "sucky" tank? The 40breeder is a great tank, so is the 55 and the 10 is sold everywhere. You not liking them or not been able to afford one, does not make them "sucky".

Hahahha.
I honestly love the 40b footprints.
So much space for $40

Re: Petco dollar a gallon sale

10g-55g tanks are usually what's included in sales. It's different for each store. Some don't include 55g in it, some don't even stock the 40B.

The sale only includes tanks up to 55. It would be highly unlikely, although greatly fortunate, if they included 75 g tanks.

Seems to always happen when I don't need a tank.

In the D.C., Maryland, or NOVA area? Come check out The Greater Washington Aquatic Plants Association! www.gwapa.org

You could always grab a 40B or two, hold them until after the sale and try to flip them for a profit. I just listed mine (bad timing apparently) for $60 on CL and I've had lots of interest.

Keep in mind not everyone is as bright as us or addicted to this hobby enough to be as pumped up to hear $1 a gallon sale. We sound like a bunch of teens getting an awesome deal on Justin beiber tickets... But yeah I'm getting one or two
