Not really a dollar per gallon

Took a ride to Petco this morning to get a 40 gallon breeder for a QT/eventual frag tank. Well the 40 and 75's are not $1 a gallon, they are only half off. Still not bad though. Only $56 for a 40 gallon. I ordered some Sera Siporax to put in my sump, I figured by the time that is populated I'll be ready to go pick up some fish for QT.

Were 50 gallons $50? My 50 is the same footprint as a 40 breeder, just taller.

75 gallon reef with 10 gallon sump

125 gallon waiting outside and functioning as my kidsí swimming pool until my husband helps me lift it onto the stand.

Too many local stores going in to raid Petco with the sale then turn around and use for their business or resale with a bump in price. I honestly don't blame them. Always a few people screwing it for those that actually bought the product for personal use.


Current Tank Info: 210 gallon mixed reef
