I was looking for a cheap fish tank + accessories to get into the hobby. I found a 55 gallon tank + accessories for $67.49 + tax with store pickup at petsmart.

price is reduced from $234.99 to $117.49. Store pickup $50 off will bring it down to $67.49 + tax.
Here is the link.

$ 117.49 Price Increase



Note: The site is a bit wonky. If the discount isn't showing up once it's in your cart, try going back to the main page and then back to your cart, and the price should update.

Price Breakdown - You are getting:
2x 24-inch hoods w/ LED lighting
Penguin 350 Power Filter
200w Submersible Heater
The above should be worth $70-85 alone if bought on sale.

So basically; you get an all glass, 55 gal. tank & the other stuff free.

btw, you will need a stand or piece of furniture (48" x 13") capable of supporting 600lbs.
(450lbs water + tank + gravel & rocks, etc.)



For those of you new to the hobby and interested in starting, here is some advice to save you some frustration, coming from someone who has had several fish tanks over 25 years:

1. First, there is nothing fast about having an aquarium. Be patient and you will get it.

2. Buy an API freshwater master test kit (do not attempt saltwater as a first tank, it is not any more work, but saltwater fish are much more susceptible to changes in water parameters, so if you get lazy, you will kill your fish.

3. The tank needs to complete what is known as a nitrogen cycle before you add fish. Please be kind and do a "fishless" cycle. You can google this if you want more information. The basic steps are this:

A. Buy a bottle of 100% pure ammonia. It has to be 100% pure, not scented or anything.
B. Add enough drops to bring the ammonia content up to 5 PPM.
C. Test the water daily until it drops to 0 PPM.
D. Dose it back up to 5PPM ammonia.
E. Repeat this cycle until it goes from 5PPM to 0PPM in a 24 hour period.
F. Once at 0PPM again, perform a 50% water change, followed by another 50% water change 2 weeks later.
G. Add fish SLOWLY. No more than 3 at a time, wait 2 weeks between adding fish.
H. Do not exceed 1" of fish per gallon of water. So with this tank, the total length of all the fish should not exceed 55". Keep in mind fish grow, so don't populate your tank to 1" per gallon to start.

4. Do monthly 30% water changes.

5. Resist the urge to clean your filter in your tank. It holds the beneficial bacteria needed to keep your fish alive. Unless there is an issue, it should not be cleaned. If you must clean it, do it inside the tank. One of the worst mistakes beginners make is to remove their filter and rinse it out in the sink.

6. Use Reverse Osmosis or Distilled water when filling/doing water changes.

7. Enjoy your new tank!

This is a pretty good deal. If I hadn't bought the petco $1 a gallon deal last month, I would've gotten this.

It seems like a much better than the petco deal as that is only for the tank? The Penguin 350 bio is worth at least $20-$35 and maybe $10-$20 for the heater depending on what it is. That is before the LED lighting.

Includes: Aquarium, Hood, Penguin 350 Bio Wheel Power Filter, LED Lighting System, Submersible Heater, Thermometer, Fish Net, Low-Voltage AC Adapter, Rite-Size B Filter Cartridge, TetraMin Tropical Food Sample, AquaSafe Water Conditioner Sample

These deals are getting better and better. Too bad my house is so small LOL. My 60G will have to do!

If anyone is just 'starting' in the hobby, this is a great deal and a good size. The larger the tank, the more stable the water parameters and easier to not screw up.

Just remember you will need a suitable stand for this, do not put it on regular furniture as the setup will weight over 600lbs when filled.

The product page says, "Save an Extra $50 when Choosing Store Pickup!" right underneath the price.

Re: $50 discount.

I clicked the "Check Store Availability" link, selected a store near me with the product in stock, added it to my cart. Went to the cart and the discount wasn't applied, backed up a page and went back to the cart and the discount was applied.
