The aqueon 29G and 55G kits are also on sale at my Petco. $105 for the 29 and $180 for the 55. They come with everything and are way cheaper than piecing it all together for a basic aquarium. If youre gonna go canister filter or different lighting you are better off piecing it out.

Stash them in the garage.

I had the same dilemma this summer. Girlfriend says " I don't know why I'm telling you this but Petco has tanks for a $1/gl." I already know this, but don't say anything.

Next day I go and get a 55G to replace my 40, and got a stand off CL for free that was pretty nice.

She wants to go out to the garage and I start to panic a bit. She asks "did you get another tank?"

I said " I might have, but since you told me about the $1/gl sale at petco this summer I hold you responsible for facilitating my addiction."

Ironically, it's all set up now and she likes it

I'm planning on getting one to be my sump/fuge for the 125g I'm planning for this next year. Anyone know what size tank will fit in a 125g cabinet? I was hoping to use a 40 or 40b. Will that fit?
I stopped scrolling through this thread after reading the first sentence. Spouses don't always understand. She says "What are you looking at on your phone?" (thinking its FB, Words w/Frnds, Twitter) and when she discovers its AA, a groan and eye roll are soon to follow.

My husband does the same thing, usually his first guesses are in either
1. On google looking up stuff on fish
2. On the forums here

With the filter you get in those kits, you still might want to add a canister.

Yea they arent the greatest out there but they are sufficient for a lightly stocked community.

Yes you can buy just the tank. Call ahead though because as someone said earlier different petcos sometimes have certain tanks excluded from the deal.
