Considering the light and filter aren't of much use, I'd probably just get a $45 DoAqua or $50 MrAqua cube tank.

If you can get another forum member to take a phone picture of their store/sign (or receipt) often you can get it matched no problem. I've even had a Petco match a photo from the display price at a Petsmart.

What would be recommended for replacing the lights and filter? I can probably swap in some CFLs yeah? I'm so tempted by this...

That would be sweet, thanks for the help!

Can somebody do that for me by chance?

Well, it worked. The gal at the checkout was very nice, but had to call a manager to verify.

She looked online, and didn't see the Chi anywhere...which we already know.

I took a picture with my phone, and brought that in. I think the reason I got the price, was that because of the camera phone, I had a date on it that had shown todays timestamp on it...and the PetSmart website logo.

Good luck if anyone else tries, but I'd think this is a very iffy deal now. I think their store policy is you have to be able to pull up the webpage physically and verify the price...but for some reason I got the price anyhow.

Must be all that charm. Hah.

Cheers.
