PetSmart 60 Gallon Aquarium
 
Our local PetSmart has their brand glass aquarium 60 gallon on sell for 99.00. Does anyone know anything about these tanks as far a quality and who the manufacture is on these.

Thanks

prolly all glass, 60 gallon tank for 99 bucks isn't bad at all, the new pet land we just got in hada deal on 55 gallon tanks with no hoods or anything for 88 bucks, and the other pet store across the street has 38 gallon tanks with no hoods or anything for 75 bucks

From what I have seen Petsmart and Petco only usually sell All-Glass. All-Glass tanks are all I have ever owned and never had a problem.

except for the weight when carrying it, what would be the advantages/disadvantages of glass over plastic tanks?

Glass dosn't scrach when cleaning it as bad as the plastic dose. A;so to plastic just dosn't have the same look . imo

i somewhat recently purchased a 55 gal kit from petsmart, with the hoods, lights, filter, and heater for $150.

my quality's fine, but does yours come with a hood and everything, or just the tank,

remember a hood and light for a tank that big is like $30 each, and of course you'll need a bigger filter and heater, (recently my petsmart dropped the prices of the penguin biofilters (penguin 350 for $40) and a 200 watt heater is say $20.
$99
$30 (2x)
$40
$20
-----
189

for what its worth, a 55 gal starter kit (only 5 gallon less) for $150, you could save yourself $40 for and have almost the same size, and have extra money to buy substrate and fish
