Petco is having their $1 per gallon sale

At least my PetCo is. I picked up a spare 20 long yesterday for $20, and I'm considering going to get a 40 breeder as a growout tank.

I can easily house four or five males in a divided 20 long, with each having plenty of room. I'm considering putting a narrow refugium in the middle with the heater and filter, and then two partitions on either side. That will give each fish almost a full five gallons, and cleaning one tank should be easier, I hope, than cleaning four.

Darn! The nearest Petco is miles from our area, otherwise I could get a new QT tank.... my old one is so beat up, and I need a new one!

I got a 20 long and am thinking about going back for another! It's such a handy size to have!

I gotta call on Tuesday to reserve a 40 gal breeder. They go pretty quick with a $75 savings.

I want one for a sorority in my house to replace my 29 gallon. I just can't give up the space for anything bigger inside. I like the shallowness of that tank because I can spend less on lighting and still grow medium light plants.
I may use it as a community tank with my huge giant male though I don't know if I want him in with other fish. I might get two and try one as a growout for my giants. I try to separate the bigger fish from the small ones.

Rubbermade tubs are far cheaper and just as good for growouts. I only use glass tanks for the girls, the breeding males, spawn tanks for the little fish and for the few really special ones I'm trying to fatten up. I like to keep an eye on those. Everything else goes in a tub ALTHOUGH I am now contemplating setting up an entire room of planted tanks to use as nursery tanks and growouts. I just really like the look of Old Fish Lady's fish room.

Where are the pics of her fish room? I'd like to see them, too....

I would absolutely love to set up a fish room, but I'd have to talk my husband out of some of his space, and I'm not sure he will budge. :)
