Great tank deal!!!!

I went looking for the petsmart 2 gallon and they wanted $21 for it! So I just got my plants and walked out. Well of course I went by walmart too and I saw that they have these great tanks on sale.

Its a tetra 3 gallon kit. It comes with a fitler, small light, and a cute decoration for $15!!!! I got 2

Here are a few pictures of it.. its great for bettas albeit a little narrow.







And a pick of the tiny pots I got... I'm gonna try using them as shrimp caves for ghost shrimp... they wholes are too small for my fish to even try to get in.



I'm really worried because I looked all over and couldn't find report binders... where are y'all getting yours?

I'm gonna try them out... they're really cute and $15 is a great deal for a 3 gallon kit.

I looked at my staples I'm worried I won't find them

I might have to stop by Walmart to buy four of them so I can separate my sorority. It would cost a lot more after I buy heaters though... Why does everything have to cost so much? Even the cheap things are expensive.

Anyways, great find, and if anyone needs me, I will either be at Walmart, or at Petco staring at the CT I wanted.

I'd never seen them online or in the store. I found one odd one sitting up on the top shelf (in the pet section BTW) and I looked at it because it didn't look like the same box as the 1.5s they usually have and when I turned around they had a whole bunch of them on the bottom shelf of the aisle across from the fish stuff with a sale tag that said $15! I payed $30 for my 1 minibow 2.5 and here are these and they come with a filter, light, and little cute decoration..

They do have a lid.. its clear so you probably can't see it in the pics. It has a bunch of different sections on the top for filter and heater cords, etc.


I really wish I could have bought more. I want to put them side by side (with paper in between) and put one light over top.. that would look really cute with 4 or 5 of these tanks. They're wide enough that I could turn them so the narrow end is the front and it would look really cute on a shelf..... I need a job!!



Edit... Noko.. you can sometimes find heaters online for cheap and buy them in bulk... might be worth looking into. I still have to get a heater for my 6 gallon. I'm only setting one of these tanks up.. I'm forcing myself to leave the other home.. I just didn't want to only get one and have the sale end.



The terra cotta pots are really little.. I got them for 59c a piece at micheals. I plan to put the wide end into the gravel and just leave the small whole sticking out for the shrimp to go in/out.... we'll see if it works.
