Keep reading the article, if you get it now and go back on Sunday they will refund the difference like a price guarantee.

"20-50=(" unless you like nano's or have dart frogs or maybe even other reptiles. I have a thriving 180, but still like a good deal when it is presented.

I think a 33-44 oceanic hex would make a beautiful vivarium for my poison dart frogs.

Very cool Todd! Thanks for the heads up! I'll have to try to get over there when the sale is going on... Anyone know which location has the best inventory?

Too bad tanks are the cheap part of the Reef Tank hobby, it's all the other stuff that makes my bank account look like it's empty =P

I have always wanted to get into those frogs, would be cool to have a tank for them.

I just picked up the 33g Oceanic cube. It was $149.99+tax, but I should get a refund of all but $33+tax. These are really nice tanks. My wifes froggies are going to love the extra space.

Umm not to rain on your parade, but just becareful it's not a scam to get you to buy something. Like the emails that fly around every once in awhile about bogus viruses. Those cubes aren't cheap even at wholesale prices. I hope it's true I would not mind having one or two at that price.

If its not true, I can just take it back and get my money back. However after talking to an associate, they said it is going to happen.

I talked to the girl at Petco. She said it's true, but it's not for the large tanks, odd shapes, bowfronts, etc. I think the size limit is 55-60. You should ask someone at the store before buying any tank.

The sale is on today! It's in today's Petco ad. Only good for in-stock tanks from 20 to 55 gallons, and doesn't include special or EZ orders, bowfrontsterrariums and boxed kits.

Well I got the money back for the difference. The price ended up being $33, so I also went to Petsmart and they price matched. I bought another 33 cube for $33, and they have a better selection. They have a 42 stretch hex oceanic that is very nice, and a few others.
