Even if you were buying it as a kit, 9 times out of 10 most people like me always change filters and lights for better grades than what come with the kits. So in the long run we save money by buying tank only.

Re: Petco $1 Per Gallon Sale

Has anyone ever seen Petco include the 75G in the $1 per G sale?

I bought 40b and like its dimensions but would love the extra 35 gallons with similar style. I don't like the 55 that much too tall and skinny.

besides that, considering tanks only have so long of a lifespan having one that is brand new and never been occupied by reptiles or rodents is always a bonus.

Most choose the 40B because it is the only 36"x18" tank in the sale!
A 30B ,40B,or even 50B are all great tanks!I still own several 30b and 40b's.
I gave my 50b to my buddy for his sump on his 75g reef.
Once you get past the HIGHLY innaccurate 1" per gallon rule, you may understand only surface area matters in regard to stocking tanks(think about where gas exchanges take place).
All 3 have same surface are which is still in excess of any other shaped tank of same volumes!
Either the 30,40,or 50 would have 648 square inches of surface area.In comparison a standard 55G{48x12 and 5 gallons more than the largest comparison}, has only 576 square inches.
If you compare the 30B to the 55g the 30 has ALMOST 2x the surface area of the 55 by volume.I even a have a 33Long(48x12x12) but it still only has 576 inches of surface.Pretty good for 33g,but the 30B still beats it!
In nature water bodies either have HUGE surfaces OR runs very fast.Fry don't live in fast waters so the large surface area is EXACTLY what fry and BREEDERS want.
If your petco sells the 40B get one.Don't wait!I've seen more then 6 leave a store in one day.
Here today gone tomorrow(the sale won't last forever either).

Re: Petco $1 Per Gallon Sale

I'm still waiting for the $2 per gallon acrylic sale... or even $3 per gallon acrylic sale... I'll keep waiting...

Need to empty, organize, insulate, wall-up and get plumbing in the garage before I buy anymore tanks, so its just as well. And of course The Lady Of The House has stated that washer and dryer come first -- or she will wash MY clothes in the aquariums. Small price to pay for more tanks...
