$1 Per Gallon Sale at Petco!

Hey everybody!

I just thought I'd let you all know (if you didn't already) that I have word from my local Petco here in Pennsylvania that the $1 per gallon sale will be starting June 29th (I've been pestering them so I can get a few new ten gallons for my shrimp room). So, if you're planning tanks... or weren't planning tanks but now can't resist because it's the dollar per gallon sale and nobody can resist, get excited! I know I am...

Thank you for this notice. I would guess that it would take a very early start to get a 40 breeder.

Thanks for the update. I have been coming thru here when time permits to see if anyone heard anything. I need a couple more 40g breeders myself to finish off my setup. I just might pick up another 10g as well. Mannn, there is always something out there that wants to take my money, lol.

I'm not a 100% sure but I don't think tanks under 20 gallons are part of the $1 a gallon sale. 10 gallons are around 14 bucks full price.

10 gallon through 55 gallon tanks are in the sale :3 I've also heard rumors elsewhere that there might be free filters or something along those lines with the tanks with this sale.... probably not good filters, but good enough for a QT tank or smaller tank

When the dollar per gallon sales are going on, mine tends to drop the prices on the Aqueon kits. Got a ten gallon kit with the hood, Aqueon 10 filter (great filter too I might add, though I put on a AC 30), and water conditioner as well for 39.99 vs 49.99. It's more expensive then a 10 gal tank for 10 dollars, but the tank is solidly built, and actually has quite a nice silicone job on it too. They had bigger Aqueon tanks for around the same price too. I think it was worth it.

Plus the hood fits two Micro Mini 13 Watt CFLs, which is perfect for most plants in a ten gal.

I go to the Petco on Lancaster Avenue in... Wynewood? They had a 40B or two a couple days ago, but the sale is still two weeks away :P And they normally get a hefty shipment of tanks in just before the sale. I'd get there within the first 48 hours or so, though. 40 Breeders are popular apparently.

MeCasa, the limit is what the store has in stock. Other than that, nope. I walked in and bought 8 20s and a 55 gallon and nobody batted an eye.
