We just went in to Petsmart to price the feeder fish and decided to just look at all the tanks they had there and see if they had any deals. We found a whole pile of 20g long tanks $20. They were the only tanks a dollar a gallon,, but for anyone who has small turtles like us and wants to upgrade from a 5 or 10 gallon tank its a good deal..
Not sure if its in every state, but don't hurt to look if you live near a Petsmart..

Apparently they do have it on 10, 20 and 40 g

That's odd. I wonder why it wasn't for tanks up to 55 gal?

I just looked up Petsmart fish tanks and discovered they do have $1 sale on 10, 20 and 40g tanks.. I am gonna take mine back and ask them to order me a 40g. They did not have any 10 or 40g in there when we were there yesterday.. Prefer a 40 cause that could pretty much be his home for a very long time if he turns out to be a male..

I don't know looking at the dimensions between 20 and 40g you don't gain much in length.. its more height and width and I am thinking its more important that turtles have length to swim in then the depth as long as they can be totally submersed when swimming.. Maybe I should wait and upgrade to 55 gallon when the opportunity arises.

Thats great! I would get a 40 gallon breeder tank if you can. They are wider. Every store must be different because the one here does not have a $1 a gallon sale.

Well the deal is online.. and it says tanks are not shipped in store only.. So I would think any Petsmart would have to honor their own site's specials.. they only sell the three sizes for a dollar a gallon..

My tank is 30 by 13 inches high. and 40 g is 36 x 17 high.. its a few inches deeper then the 20 gallon but I am not sure its worth the extra money. I would rather have longer and shallower then taller and deeper..

Well, more room is more room. I would go for the 40. Didn't realize you were looking online. I like breeder tanks.

Well my 20g is called 20 g long.. I was t hinking that is pretty much same idea as a breeder tank. But the 40g that is on sale is not listed as such. Do you have any idea what the dimensions are for a 40g breeder tank?

ok so the petsmart 40g on sale is breeder tank dimensions.. its 36x19.25x17.25. The 20g seems so huge compared to what he has.. I can't imagine putting him in 40g..lol Gotta go today to take some ferret treats back they didn't like,, gonna ask about the 40g that are supposed to be on sale.

It really didn't take that long before I thought the 40 was looking a little small. I guess its like tv's. Buy a 40 then you want a 50 etc. When I got my tank it was the only 40 gallon they had at petco. It wasn't on sale. $40 is a steal for a breeder 40. I used to own a ferret. Little pain in the butt that he was. :-)

haha we are addicted to ferrets.. We love their pain in a butness.. It makes life interesting..

That is what I am worried about getting one so big so soon.. We are really leaning towards eventually doing some sort of indoor pond thing for the winter and outdoors for the rest of the year.. So instead of 40 gallon tank would we be better served buying a 40-50 gallon preformed pond or rubbermaid tub.. and build something around it for aesthetics.. I figure we need to have something in case of a sick turtle or a turtle that needs dry docking, but would the 20g be big enough for that or the 40?

Well they don't have any in our local store gotta drive half hour to nearest one to go take a look and I bet we can't take 20 back to the store that has 40 and the shanigans begins.. ugggg what happened to stores just ordering stuff in for customers when they requested it.. :(

I'm not sure about the dry docking. I guess its ultimately up to you.

I would not dry dock a turtle in a glass tank. They sometimes get very antsy and rub against the glass. The other PetSmart should take the 20 back, hopefully it works out. A bonus if you use the 40 is you get more time to work things out with a possible pond.
