Good for you I wish they had the 75g on the sale. I personally don't care for the 55g, not enough depth for me lol

LOL! I've been obsessed with saltwater fish since I had my first tank at 20 yrs old! LOOOOOVVVEEE IT!

Yes, I want my 150 gallon back but I don't know if the upstairs can handle the weight. I really can't go above 100 gallons max... =(. I just need to build a house with a tank wall! LOL!

Actually a 150 compared to a 55 is 95 more gallons. 1us gallon weighs something like 8.5lbs. So that just about 850 lbs in just water, not to mention the weight of the extra substrate and decor.

She said 100g is her max.. 150-100=50. And nikki it wouldnt be a crash... Itd be a "WTF just crashed into my house?!?" kinda sound

Don't know if they have any outside the NYC area, but petland discounts several months back had their own $1/gallon sale that included up to 75gal.

Can't tell you if it was just a one time thing or once a year etc .. but they were offering it across their stores ... not just the one where I saw it adverstised.

I'm sorry. I'm sure now that u meant jumping up to a 150g from 100g. I was thinking you meant jumping up from a 55g to a 150g would only be 4-500lbs more.
