Gah! I just got a tank because I was waiting for this sale to happen and got tired of waiting! Guess I'm going to Petco tomorrow

I don't have a Petco, wonder how close the nearest one to Mississippi is?

HOpe this includes breeder cages that can be used for bearded dragons.

@susiewoots: The Petco website says they're in all 50 states. Punch in your zip and see what you get.

@cpheral: As far as I know, only glass aquariums intended for use with fish are on sale, but if you're creative you can make it into anything you want.

Note - this ONLY applies to plain, cubic, glass, black-trim aquariums. Nothing fancy with curve glass, no special deals on combo kits.

Do yourself a favor and don't buy a tank less than 30 gallons. Larger tanks are much easier to maintain then smaller ones, all other things being equal. I've had a 30 gallon running non-stop for nearly 20 years, only partially drained and taken offline for a few moves but never totally dismantled.

$1/gallon... what a deal, I thought!

So, I bought a 10 gallon container and also noticed a sale on fish too, so I picked up about a dozen of these pretty blue and red Crowntail fish since they were 50% off and tossed them all in together to get acquainted.

At first, they seemed really happy and energetic as I drove home, but when I got back...well...the container must've had the BPAs cause they were all...

;__;

...I wonder if it's too late to get a refund.

@sykotek: Did you properly acquaint your fish to your water? There are plenty of things you need to do to a tank than just throw in some fish...

How long is this sale good for?

@epsy06: Totally! I totally properly acquainted the fish to each other, the tank, and the water!

After I poured them all into the tank, I stuck my finger in and swirled the water really quickly and made a sort of whirlpool effect.

They seemed to enjoy it, I think it's like the fish equivalent of a merry-go-round or was it a carousel...or a tilt-o-whirl maybe...? Which amusement park ride is the one where it spins you so fast you stick to the side of it? That one.

...I even bought them cotton candy, but man, they ate it so fast it looked like it just dissolved the moment it hit the water.

I refuse to shop at Petco anymore after they left animals in the store during a flood we had here is September. They had plenty of warning to more them but they didn't. I know its not representative of the company as a whole just not for me anymore.

The 40 Breeder style tank is the best deal out of this sale. That tank, in those dimensions, is usually nearly/over a hundred bucks for whatever reason. Absolutely perfect tank for a sump or a coral frag tank.

I bought a 40 gal breeder at this very sale like 8 years ago. Love. It.

@v3n0m91 & @trevinopete: It's a joke, I wasn't trolling, I was just having a little fun..., but when @epsy06 commented back in what I perceived to be a concerned manner, I figured I'd go a little more OTT to prevent anyone else from thinking it was anything except a joke. I figured most deals wooters would have a better sense of humor.
