Any good websites?

Hello! I'm am going to upgrade from my 10 gallon to a 55 gallon soon, and I was wondering if there are any good websites that sell tanks online. Also, what is the ratio of the gph of a filter per gallon?

Thank You!

not sure where to get one online but 10x flow is recommended so the filter should pump at least 550gph

Shipping a 55 gal would cost an arm and a leg.. Best bet is to go to petco/petsmart and get one there.

If you like glass I agree go to petco( I think they have a sale going on till the 27th. "1 per gallon" so your 55 gallon would only be 55 dollars. But if you want acrylic I would look at amazon they have good prices. I like the brand seaclear. Acrylic is a little pricey though but so much clearer, just watch out for scratching it does scratch kinda easy. Hope I helped good luck and send pics when your done with it

I agree with going to petco if you can. Shipping a tank will be very expensive. And the dollar per gallon sale is awesome and worth the trip. I got two tanks (40 and 20 gallons) and a rather expensive betta today for less than the original cost of the 40 gallon tank. Less than $100 actually. It's a good deal if you ate just looking for a tank and not a kit!
