Default 15g aquariums

I am looking into some 15 gallon tall aquariums that I am wanting to turn into verts for a new rack project I have in mind. I want the verts to fit snuggly above my 33cube which is 20.5" in width. Two 10 gallon verts would fit perfectly above the cube but I have been looking into the 15g tall aquariums for a little more space while keeping the 10g base. The verts will hopefully one day hold pairs of imitators or vents.

Now to my question. I stopped at the closest pet store and asked if they could order me 15g standards or 15g tall aquariums. They told me sure and that they would be $31 each thats just for the aquarium. Does this price seem to high to you guys? I was expecting them to be cheaper then this but haven't been able to find much info for these tanks on the net just that they exist :lol: Anyone have any idea what these tanks go for these days?

Kyle (our admin) uses 15g extensively. If he doesn't see this thread, pass him a PM and ask him.

I too am looking for something a little bigger than 10g. The 15g would be my choice, but yes they seem too expensive.

I can get 10g for abou 11.99 or so, so 31$ seems too much for just 5gal more... It is just that 10g are so much more used/wanted/produced than 15g.

31 seems high tho


Let me know if you find a cheaper source

I stopped at another local fish store today and asked them how much 15 gallons would cost and they said $39, that is rediculous! Here they sell 10 gallon tanks for $9.99 and 5.5 gallons are $13. I understand why this is but it just blows my mind how they price things these days.

I think petco needs to get the ball rolling on another dollar a gallon sale so we can stock up on some reasonably priced tanks!

A 15 has the same foot print as a 10 right? I'd be tempted to buy frames from glass cages, and get glass and some silicone and do it myself.

Yes defaced a 15 "tall" has the same base as a 10. The standard 15 base is a little larger at 24"x12".

I think you have a great idea there about buying the frames and building my own tanks. I will probably due just that. I was half tempted to start rethinking how I wanted to build my rack.

i dont think that price is too bad, i've been paying $29.xx for 15H tanks at place that sell 10's for $6.99, 15H have always been a bit pricey and i've never really found a killer deal on them
