Petsmart is having a dollar per gallon aquarium sale, up to 40 breeder size. I read that some stores have 55 gallons for $55, YMMV.

Now OOS for shipping, in-store pickup only

If you order online for pickup, you get another 10% off...so a 40b for $36!

Petco may price match...

Note: 40 breeder is an excellent size for an aquarium, not as narrow front to back as a 55. It's 16 inches front to back as opposed to only 12 for a 55 - makes a big difference, trust me! They also measure 3 ft across - a 55 is 4 ft across - something to consider.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Don't feel bad... Every beginner makes that mistake. Keeping an aquarium healthy requires water changes (so you will need some buckets and a syphin hose) and understanding the bacteria cycle. If you are just getting started treat setting up an aquarium like a science experiment, don't name your fish until the tank is established else it's just going to suck more if they die.

If you try again get a bigger tank as they are much easier to maintain consistent water quality than smaller ones. I generally buy a filter rates for higher gallons than the tank I use so for a 29 gallon tank I use a filter for a 50 gallon tank. Use a quick start solution to get some bacteria in your tank and start with no more than 1 fish per 10 gallons.after about a month you should be able to add a few more fish but you want to only add a couple at a time.

I'd also recommend buying a water test kit so you can learn about the nitrogen cycle and know when its safe to add more fish or when you need a water change.

Also some types of fish need water heaters and they really are worth getting as they can make your tank much healthier.

Bigger tanks are actually easier for beginners than smaller tanks. Water chemistry fluctuations happen more slowly.

Just found me a full grown bearded dragon.
a 40-50 gallon will make him happy.
I figured I'd just go to some garage sells, but this is better.

How are these durability wise long term? Will they leak? Trying to decide whether or not to replace my current 55g with a smaller 40g breeder.

Any recommended cheapish stands? TIA!

How come it seems like the tanks sell out faster at PetSmart than when Petco has their dollar/gal sale?

I really really like aquariums but problem is how to take care of it. Last time, I bought one bowl and couple gold fish. They both died next day. I felt so bad that I dont want to do something wrong just bcz I dont know how to do it.

Is 10gal big enough for a beginner setup?
Any suggestions on what else to buy... filter, light, etc? I want to get some easy fish for the kids. Anything but goldfish.

These tanks are very durable and will last many years. Downsizing your 55 to a 40 is up to personal preference. Major difference in display. The 40 is deeper, but the 55 is longer and will look better, plus you can have more fish. I currently have a 75gal, 55gal, 40gal and 38gal bowfront, all planted.

Pretty sure that wasn't the dollar a gallon sale you got, since these deals generally are tank only. Holiday sales can be great that come with everything to get started.
