They had their last dollar per gallon sale in June/July, so the next one is probably either September/October or October/November.

Not for the dollar per gallon, but they do have tanks with filters as a package

Alright so a 55 gallon with everything including lights would be around 150$ during those sales?

No way, but if that is your budget check Craig's list

It really depends on what you want to do with your tank? Do you want heavy plant mass? Low light high light? Co2 or no Co2? lets see i have a 29 gallon planted tank and i have put probably 400+ dollars in just equiptment. T5 fixture 55g marineland canister 30g HOB marineland filter. Co2 system dry ferts power heads heaters substraight it all adds up. But it is really up to you and what you plant to do with your tank. Save up 1000 and just go buck wild

I would say 275 and up, depending on
Your needs. But do check Craig's list, some good deals there. Are you looking to plant that tank?
