Petco currently has their 40 gallon terrarium at a pretty good discount in my area. I haven't decided on a beardie yet.. I'm still shopping around. Can anybody tell me anything or have any personal experience with "Spice Dragons"?

I don't really have any experience with Spice Dragons, but I've heard good things about them. I would also recommend keeping an eye on what's on Craigslist around your area, I got my 75 gallon for $75 and it was in great condition once it was cleaned.

If I'm going to pay retail for a 40 gallon terrarium I may as well go brand new and not second hand.


If it were me, I'd think I'd contact the second-hand folks and tell them just that (and remind/inform them of the Pet- sales and invite them to check it out for themselves)--they may be receptive to a lesser reasonable offer, especially if they're not getting any nibbles at their asking prices. :wink:

I can't recall the exact quote/saying, but it essentially says "It's a fair deal when both sides walk away feeling stiffed" (or something like that).

I agree with you there. My 2cents worth, as a newbie who just bought a tank, is to order from Petco online and then have it delivered to your local store for pickup. You'll save 10% or more on the shelf prices that way, plus no shipping charges; the 40B setup I just got was something like $116 in the store, but $93 online. Just bought a cricket shaker yesterday - same thing, $15 on the shelf, $11 when bought online. And Petco does do their buck a gallon sales more often than Petsmart; I think they're due for one soon.

My local Petco has the Zilla Critter Cage, 40 Gallon for sale at 50% off with petco card which would be a little over $31. In stores only.

Oh, man! I just bought that, too - figures it was just before it went on sale. :oops:
