What sizes of tanks does petco typically have? Any 37 gallons?

It's usually 10, 20H, 20L, 29, 40B, and 55. I don't recall the 37g ever being part of that sale... it's not a really popular size tank.

Hope this helps

I know they just had one back in January. So probably not anytime soon

My local Petco starts it on March 30. Not sure when it will end though but most likely mid April. I believe the sale is nationwide, from what the manager said.

My local PetSupplies Plus had that sale, but the 40 gallon wasn't part of it-apparently non standard sizes didn't count

Really? This is tempting. I could really use another 10 gallon

Anyone in Canada know if partsmart ever does these sales? I just started keeping fish in January so I never realy paid attention to their marketing prior.

New England area, we start March 30th too.
I'm trying to be patient, but the days are creeping by sooooo sloooooowly!
I already scouted it out, they had tens straight up to 50s. I saw my 30 gallon there! I plan to stop in on the 30th and pick it up quickly! Maybe I'll get an extra 10 while I'm there.
Then I'll have:
2 tens
2 twenties
1 30
1 75
Yea, that sounds good, right?

Petsmart does their "annual aquatics event" from January to March when they discount almost all their tanks and supplies. If you have a Petco nearby, the dollar per gallon sale is much more worth your while!

I think I saw one at my local petco for like, 89.99 or something? Not really worth it to me, but I'm super pumped about this weekend, lol

Probably getting a couple 10s and another 40, so I can use my current one for a ball python and use the new on for fishies.

I thought the Dollar Per Gallon sale at PetCo means you got $1off Per gallon. So say a 55 gallon is normally $155, you'd get $55 off, and pay $100 at register. Not $1 per gallon for tanks, correct me if I'm wrong? If so I'm going to pick up a couple 55g's !!

No, it's literally $1 per gallon. The 10g is $10, the 20g is $20, etc.

They're really a steal during the sale!

You pay $1 per gallon, so each 55g will be $55 plus tax. This does not, however, work for 5g tanks, much to my despair. I wants to make a bunch of shrimp and betta tanks -sighs-

Did you hear this from a store manager? My local Petco doesn't have an ad online this week so I'm unsure.
