    The regular price is $199, but if you choose "pick up from store" it takes off $150 off the price.  .

    The deal is listed as "valid thru 7/30" so if you're interested you got to act fast.

    I already bought it and it went through.

    I'm new to the hobby so I don't know if this is a great deal or not. It seems like a good deal to me... I mean it is less than $1 per gallon and it comes with a stand! But when something is too good to be true I always get a little worried. Does anyone have experience with this tank?

    Also, I have a japanese compact car! Is it possible for me to pick this up from Petsmart or do I have to find a friend with a van/truck to pick this up?

    Finally, I don't really have room for this at the moment. I may need another month or two before I can use this tank. Can I leave it at Petsmart indefinitely or will they force me to pick it up within a certain amount of time?

    Edited to add: Quantity definitely limited. I looked at the same page again and clicked on "check availability" and it seems like the store where I am picking my tank from is "out of stock" so apparently I bought the only one they have available. Maybe Marinelane is coming up with a new model and they are trying to get rid of floor models?

    I was going to buy that ensemble because it was on sale for $250 but then I didn't because I would've wanted a 75g later down the road. 48x18 footprint beats a 48x13 any day....

    It's back to $199.99. When I looked at 630 this morning, it was still $49.99. When I checked 2 hours later at work, it reverted back to $199.99. Probably best, since I really don't need to set up another tank. But 50 bucks?! What a steal.

    exactly a deal like that is worth making room for.

    $199.99 is still good compared to the original price. But not that good haha.

    Dude you can't keep live rock in a lightly brackish tank. It will die in such low salinities.

    Gena, i wasnt going to make it a brackish tank but a salt water tank due to the live rock. i was just expressing how i missed out on the whole package of the tank n stand at an amazing price.

    Hi guys, update time!

    So it was not a fluke or computer error. The sale DID go through. Unfortunately I only have 5 days to pick up this monster, or else Petsmart will cancel the sale.

    I don't think I can fold my rear seats, but I heard some people put the passenger seat down. Maybe that will work. If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them!

    Great to hear Brandon! If you have any suggestions with regards to the hoods and lights (i.e. did you keep the stock ones or change them) I would love to hear about your experience.

    Yeah that 13 inch footprint might end up bugging me eventually...

    Unfortunately I think the sale is done. But now that I know you guys are interested, I'll ping the forum again if I see this deal again.
