Amen, brother. There is zero doubt in my mind that $-Gallon-Tank sales generate profits for stores. They might be just breaking even or maybe taking a very small profit, but then the lights, the stand, the filter, the plants, the substrate, the fish, etc. still need to be purchased. And at some point you go up in size beyond the on-sale sizes. Just surprised Petland in Pensacola include 75'er. The hobbyists luckey enough to get $-Gallon sales reported on the internet normally max out with a 55 gallon size.
