Next $1/gallon sale???

Anybody know when the next Petco $1/gallon sale is? Hoping for one soon. Really want a 55g tank and people here on Craigslist don't understand what a used tank is really worth. Can't snag a 55 for under $75. Driving me nuts...

I know that Pet Supplies Plus had a $1/gallon sale not too long ago, but that ended. PetCo usually does it 2-3 times a year. Since they just had their $1/gallon sale not too long ago, I wouldn't imagine them to have another for a few more months...

And yes, people on Craigslist think all their stuff is gold and want too much for it usually...
When I sold stuff through them, I would keep an open mind and I wouldn't mind bartering just to get rid of it. Apparently, he's not in that big of a hurry to get rid of it

Dangit. I had a feeling I missed one recently. I don't have much time during the semester to be on the forums all the time and mess with aquarium stuff. Haven't really paid attention to anything since before christmas...

It goes up to 55 gallons, just not anything larger then that.

Just wait it out. Most of the C-List stuff is used & abused, scratched, dents & chips. If you want this for a display tank you'll be proud to show off buy a new one.

i actually asked this past monday.. the manager said probably in the couple of months..

she also said they were changing over some tank stuff..

so they will be carrying more kits..

but they are making space for tank displays.. so keep checking in to see if anything goes on a quick sale..

Yeah I'd prefer a new tank over a used one. But somebody would realistically sell me a used 55 at $50 or a few bucks less I'd settle for that. So annoying. No, your used 55 plus lid/light isn't worth $100.... ugh

I guess that depends on the light they have... T8s... not worth it... T5HOs... it would be worth it

i have a 55 w/3/8" glass. top rim was cracked so i de-rimmed it, and painted the back black. new rim is cheap through glass cages. if you want it, it's yours, come pick it up and bring some plants with you as an offering to the almighty bed bully(my wife)!! LOL seriously, if you want it and don't mind putting a new rim on it, it is yours for the taking. i was just gonna use it as an emersed setup anyway.
