Petco $1 Per Gallon Sale

I'll start with sorry for all those addicted(I'll be no help),but the Petco $1 per gallon sale is on in NY.I'm not sure if this is the everywhere in the country,but in NY it's on!
The tanks they sell for a $ a gallon are; 10g,15g,20g long,20g tall,29g,40breeders and 55g.I'm not sure about 30g(I didn't see any).
So being a truely addicted member(I seek no help with problem{it's not really a problem I can control it!)I grabbed 2 20 highs and a 55 to fill in a 4' space I just aquired by building new closet upstairs(sounds like a deal ,but the closet is bigger;7X7).
Again I'm sorry if causes any "re-lapses" but they seem to standard practice in addiction recovery(if you don't see me at next meeting I'm probably still setting up!),but promise to "come around again sometime".

Re: Petco $1 Per Gallon Sale

Lol your as bad as me. I stay away from those sales. Here in Oklahoma, its very seldom you can get them to put the 40 gal breeders on the sale. Which is what I like, but I already have 8 of them and not all are being used yet.

SUCCESS IS MEASURED BY YEARS, NOT MONTHS!!!

Re: Petco $1 Per Gallon Sale

I wish I was as bad as you Susankat!
I didn't join rehab by choice(I got mandated by court when I got over 500g).
I may have a little more room for the 40B(my choice also,but had the 4' space so I chose 2 levels that will fit;[email protected] under the 55).
I also just ordered heaters and sponges from Kens fish(they're great).
My wife actually said(mind you within 3 weeks of the 120g arriving)"don't you think you should have another saltautolinker.com autolinking image water tank!"
I LOVE HER!
If I set these up FW I think I can still get more?
The tanks are basically a steal(aqueons are very good tanks),BUT nothing else there is worth buying.
Oh ya,THANKS FOR SHARING!

Re: Petco $1 Per Gallon Sale

Yeah my 220 is made by aqueon, got to order through my lfs from the wholesaler at lfs cost.
Good thing the court don't make me go. I have 1200 gals.
Kens is the best. Order all my food but frozen from him. I spend a couple hundred on food every 3 months.

Re: Petco $1 Per Gallon Sale

Went by Petco in Louisiana today, i noticed the 10 gallon, and 29 gallon were marked at a dollar a gallon. I saw a 55 but didn't see a sale tag on it. Looks like it might be nation wide.

Re: Petco $1 Per Gallon Sale

Wow wish we had petco here. My lfs has 55g for 70 bucks. Not as good a deal, but ok. Not in the market for another 55g. A 40 would have been nice..........

Re: Petco $1 Per Gallon Sale

What a sale.... Guy at petco here (WV) said they're below cost. I picked up a 20L, but still craving a 40B. I've been in nanos for the last several years, so happy to be moving back up

5 gal Fluval Chi, 6 gal Eheim Aqua Scape
Bettas: Ninja (Blue VT) & Samurai (Black HM)
55 gal planted with Swordtails, fry & RCS

Re: Petco $1 Per Gallon Sale

The sale is on here in Massachusetts also. I want a 20 long and I thought a 55 also. But looks like a number of you prefer the 40B over the 55? It that because of the width (18 vs 12) or height, or just the length is preferable? I prefer the shorter tank for planting but thought the extra length might be better.

If I get one of these two larger ones it would house my angel pair along with rummy nose, cories, otos and BN's. Suggestions/recommendations, pros and cons of 55 vs 40B?

Oops! Just saw another thread asking the same question. I'll read through that!

Call up your local store and ask "When's your next $1/gallon sale?"

Depends on location. I'd bet twice a year??

Warning! The price is for the TANK ONLY! Add in the cost of the hood assembly separately and not on sale and you've just purchased the two at near regular price. Unless you already have a hood or were replacing it anyway you are only saving very little.



GH 180, KH 240, pH 8.2. Amazon Sword, fake log, real log, some rocks, demasoni, auritius, tinfoil barb, sucking loach, 3 giant danio, aquaclear 30, 50 Watt heater, 20W bulb, thermometer. 29 Gallons.

Well that would be true if you bought the rest of your stuff there. I can find far greater deals online that still makes this a really good sale specially on the bigger tanks.

Re: Petco $1 Per Gallon Sale

I have to say I don't shop at Petsmart,but last time someone posted the sale I was totally unprepared (and disapointed)so I searched the petsmart sites and links and saw when the sales were on last year, and noticed that right after christmas in 2011 the sale was mentioned.So It seemed like a good idea to drive by and see,and sure enough they seem to follow some sort of schedule(after Xmas seems like the dumbest choice{gift certificates and all} but I was prepared and jumped ).Glad see I'm not alone in the midst of my(our)" issues",and would say to search their site if you were caught unprepared like me, and plan your future accordingly.Hope everyone enjoys,and plans for the future.
