Just wanted to mention that I tried this at Petco Beretania and it works. If you talk to a regular sales person they'll say no, but just talk to the main fish dude and he'll say that his manager will honor it (but only the 40b and 55, nothing smaller).

Odd. Over here it's the opposite. The Topfin tanks are very low quality and the Aqueon tanks are decent. Always have a Topfin tank leak or crack. I guess it's different everywhere. Some people in other states have seal problems with Aqueon but nothing like that really happens in Houston.

Not I went to petsmart and they honor the $1 a gallon. Cause petco is their competitor. I bought 3 40B from petsmart. Cause quality is better. Lol
Petsmart tanks are topfin which are lower quality than Petco's Aqueon tanks. The sale might not have been the $1/gal but just a regular sale? The Petcos here do the sale at least 2x a year. Last year they did it 3-4x. Only 10-55gal though.

I don't see why you'd want a Topfin tank over an Aqueon tank though. If they're the same price, might as well go for the higher quality one.

Petco has been in Hawaii for about 2 years(?) I can only remember having the sale once since they have opened. I suspect the shipping costs for the tanks is the reason why they hardly have these sales here.

Each store does it at their own times or at least each state from what I've gathered. Our $1/gal sale here in Houston was last month I believe. Only 10-55gal tanks

Morbo Anyone know if the one in town (Beretania) ever runs this sale too?

bikercarl Aloha Kai,

I know that they do this nationally and a couple of years ago when I was searching for 40B tanks, they had one, but Hawaii was excluded (of course)! Maybe they needed some "friendly competition" to help us local enthusiasts out!
