Just looked at the $1 per gallon tanks

Went down to Petco and looked at the tanks, I was interested in the 55Gal.

But I looked at it and the glass looks like it's about 1/4" thick, I don't know if I would trust it.

My 65Gal I currently have the glass is 3/8" thick. That's a 1/8" difference for 10Gal.

Think I'll save my money and pass on the 55. I'll buy some new fish....

yea but that warranty is limited if the tank is not on one of their stands voided, there are other stipulations also (I looked at it a little).

Not to mention it's not going to cover the water damage to your house, nor the loss of fish.

Not worth the gamble.
