Can you find this tank?

Hello. I am thinking of upgrading from my current 1.5 gallon tank to a 5 gal. The Aqueon Mini Bow 5 gallon to be exact. Problem is, I can no longer find it any where but amazon. but the price on amazon is too high for my budget. Does anyone know of a pet store that carries this tank?

I've seen minibow 5's at my local Petsmart and Petsupermarket. They both run about $45 though. A better deal might be the walmart 5 gallon kit.

Don't go for the mini bows ;-; The filter is HUGE for the tank, and takes up about half the space. It's also very harsh, and was pulling my betta everywhere. I agree w/ 1f2f, go for the walmart kit. The plain old rectangles actually tend to look better than the mini bows.

Haven't seen a MiniBow5 online for a good price in a while.
Check ebay? I agree, for the price is better to go for the Kit but if it's looks you're after, I can't blame you for wanting the Bow. I have 2 and love them!

They have them at petsmart I know and I think petco may have them I know they have the mini bow 1 so they should have the 5 gal. I know on petsmarts website they hade them on major sale for awhile.

I like my minibow but it is the older version with the in-tank filter. It does take up a lot of room but the flow is very low on my 2.5. I like it.. but I probably wouldn't have got it if it weren't on sale.

i agree with the rectangle bit, but in all honesty it's your choice, i dont know if it's helpful but petco has a sail on tanks right now you can get a ten gal for ten bucks, i was told that the 'dollar a gallon' sail only applied to ten gal and up, and you said 5 gal, but it's still a good buy considering.
