No, at least not if you keep an eye out for problems.

Most definately! I hated having to clean my 10 gallon all the time but its much less work with my 20 & 36. Plus the huge syphon I have I could not fit in my 10 so it was always dirtier than the others. Gave up on it, too much work & not worth it for the size in my opinion.

A larger volume of water will prevent tank temperatures from fluctuating too easily, and thus is more consistent and stable for the inhabitants.

Just a heads up to call this Friday/Sat to check for $1 sale. I talked with one of the guys in the Miami petco store & they shipped & stocked plenty of aquarium to the stores & he says that is when their $1 sale goes on when they get a big order like that. 55g might not be on the $1/gal.

I did notice a surplus of tank sitting around at my petco. Some were cracked but it sounds like a plan! Time to pick up that 40B

Ya my petco has 3x as many tanks as they usually do. You cant even walk down the tank isle without walking sideways.

Love that 40b & always the first tank that is sold out when they start the $1. I want to get the 40b but I just took down the 50g to make room for a saltwater biocube/29g that I want to get

In Austin, the sale is on through July 27th.

Only 10, 29 & 40 gallon tanks are on sale. Now I don't feel so bad about picking up the 20L last week...

I just rode my bike to check, and it's on for today through tomorrow. There were three 40Bs. I was going to buy one but it would have been hard dragging a 40 gallon tank along with a bike all the way back home. I'm going to have to wait and hope they don't get taken...

Sale is for 10-55 gallons.

Only 2 days? I thought they lasted longer than that, at least a week.
