Does the kit come with a heater? The worst part for me in getting a new tank is not getting a lid with it, but I don't like the hoods that come with most kits. I am starting to make my own hoods now, but I still need the glass tops to go under those hoods. Part of me wonders if it would be cheaper to go get the glass cut to size at a local shop.

Still though, $10 for the tank, $14 for the glass lid (at Petsmart, just bought one), $14 for the heater, and it will cost me $10 to make a hood with better lighting than any premade hood will offer. If I could eliminate or lower the cost of the glass lid then any size tank (not just 10 gals) would be really reasonable! This needs to be investigated more...

Yes the $30 10 gallon aquarium kit comes with heater, thermometer, lid, LED lighting, and Whisper filter.

Tetra whispers are nice filters, but they often need baffling for a betta, even at the lowest setting.

Are the kit heaters adjustable, or fixed? The kit sounds like a good "get started" deal, but if the heater isn't adjustable, I'd replace it day one and keep the other as an emergency spare.

I dont think this sale is on. I havent gotten the email about it and not to mention the sale goes on longer than a week. Until someone provides proof, im calling this thread bogus.

go to petco.com. go to your local ad and on the side where the scroll bar says categories select fish. then select aquariums and bowls. and there ya go. it says right there with different tanks. the tanks start at 10 gallons and go up. THIS THREAD ISN'T BOGUS. GO SEE FOR YOURSELF IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME THEN HERE IT IS.

This is from my local ad, on the petco website



Apparently the details of the sale differ from region to region though


I think I want to pick up a new 10 gallon to upgrade my boy from his 5 gallon, once it stops snowing
