I went with an Aqueon 10 Gal starter kit including the heater since the complete set was less than buying a 10 gal for 14.99 plus heater, filter, hood and light...Back then the starter kit was a store special for $46.
I think Petco store prices vary quite a bit from state to state and even within a state as I have experienced with the two Petco stores around here. My favorite 10 min. south of here the other 20 min. north of where I live. The store north of here is in the same shopping mall area as a Petsmart and the prices there are higher and they only have the weekly advertised specials. The store south of here has more special value deals than advertised. Must be all up to the store manager, they seem to have some freedom in price policy and how to make their revenue.
