Cost of a new glass Aqueon 5.5 gal?

How much does a new Aqueon 5.5 gallon aquarium usually cost? Thanks!

According to their site, Aqueon does not sell 5.5 gallons. TopFin (PetSmart brand) sells 5.5 gallons, though.

Lol yes they do...they have them at my lfs and petco...On the webiste they call it 5 gallons because that is a standard size, much like the larger size tanks aren't the *exact* gallon size that the name implies...

I think they cost in the 40 to 50 dollar range typically. I looked into them when I was tank hunting for Luna; I've heard from the reviews that the hood isn't terribly well designed (the lights are prone to shorting out) and that the rounded corners distort the fish.

Right now I have Luna in a Marineland 5 gallon Hex shaped aquarium (http://www.amazon.com/Marineland-Ecl...rineland+hex+5) and it's terrific.

The 5 gallon from Marineland is usually 40 to 50 as well, but you can usually catch it on sale for 30 dollars at petsmart's website. They're constantly changing the sales items, so if you check back daily -- typically within a week -- it'll be back on sale.

Oh I just meant the aquarium by itself. I actually called petco. 13.99 at my petco if anyone was wondering...
