Aka the "no I don't NEED a 40 breeder.... But I might buy one" sale...:D
It’s how I got into reefing during the last sale!

Any brands you recommend from petco? The last one (10 gal) or so that I bought from them 5-6 years ago for my freshwater is still good..

I bought a 10 gal from them last year, leaked after a month, got a replacement which also leaked..Maybe those were just some crappy ones..

or perhaps their bigger tanks are built better?

I've had good luck with cheap Aqueon tanks. Three FW 29Gs in college and one is still going without leaking (other two got torn down). My current 40B and 75G FW are from Aqueon with no issues besides them phoning in smoothing the silicone.

I have a bunch (about 7 or 8) of the inexpensive Aqueon brand tanks that are on sale, of various smaller sizes up to 20g. I haven’t had any leak or other serious problems with them, so I don’t think it’s a common issue.

Where did it leak? Leaking on a 10g rimmed tank seems like it would have been a pretty major defect.

Went to the Union City Petco today for some fish food. Saw a 60gal Aqueon breeder tank but the cashier tried ringing it up and it didn't reflect a sale price. Anyone know if this is excluded from the sale for some reason?

The 20 High is not listed either, but it's apart of the sale. Bought one yesterday for a QT tank. Petco off Concord Ave has a 60G Breeder, not sure if it might ring up different at this location.
