WOW - new 60g tank!
We went to Petsmart today for some fry food, silicone and maybe a hood for my old 29g tank...
I'm not sure what happened, but there was a 60g ensemble (tank, stand, hoods) with a good price.
I looked at the price, then at my wife and said, "can that be right?" Her eyebrows raised as I said wow and then she said it can be part of your birthday (a couple months away). "But you know we're gonna need a filter, heater, gravel...."
Well, it's setup in my living room now and the fishless shrimp cycle has begun.
Now inside the Aquaclear filter, instead of carbon, I fashioned a bag of gravel from the 10g tank to give the bacteria a jump start. Pretty bare right now....needs decor.
I love when that sorta thing happens
Many a story like that is why my wife wants to start a support group.

Same exact way with me. The only difference is one of the hoods was broke(I fixed it with gorilla glue) and the stand had a small blemish(hasnt affected look or stability) and they both got 80$ off the price along with the sale they had going on which cut the price in half. Amazing
Every ody finds good deals but me. I pay ful price for every thing. Rats
Yay for new tanks! :welldone::blueyay:
Any plans for stock yet?
Haha your story is the exact same as mine, bought the same tank you bought for $227 by the time I bought the rock and decor it was well over $300. I did manage to sell my old one on the same day for $120 so I am very happy with how I came out. Goodluck with your new tank.
Petco has a huge sale right now thru 04/27 on their Aqueon Aquarium kits. they come with the tank, the hood, the light, the filter, the heater, fish food, a net, and a sample water conditioner.
if you have a Petco card, the prices are...
$30 - 10 gallon setup
$54 - 20 gallon setup
$72 - 29 gallon setup
i grabbed a 29 gallon setup last week. it's sitting on the living room floor while i figure out where to put it, and what to use as a stand. i have a spare dresser that is exactly 30 inches wide, same as the tank, so it'll probably go on there.
Can you say CHARGE - lol
You are right it was $249, still a heck of a deal I think.
