pretty much, thats the impression i got from his response

"Yes sir. Successful planted tanks are really quite valuable. But of course, i would be willing to negotiate something more attuned to your needs."

i'm not sure how to respond to that lol. maybe i'll offer him what that tank is actually worth....i'm thinking $350 if he delivers and sets it up? is that still to high?

?
Kind of funny! Lol

I don't think you want a completed planted tank, why don't you build one by yourself? That's more enjoyable than just get a 'successful planted tank'!

Better yet, send him a link to a shopping cart full of everything he has.

That's a very loose use of the term "aquascaped." My farm tank is more aquascaped than that.

In the D.C., Maryland, or NOVA area? Come check out The Greater Washington Aquatic Plants Association! www.gwapa.org

To Aquatic Delight, for reference I got my 46 bow, stand and light for $125 a few years ago off Craigslist. I know prices vary, but I thought that was a decent price for a used tank and fall aparticle board stand.

For 1500 we all could put together a Ada setup fully planted and would blow this tank away.

A brand new acrylic 46 bowfront, stand, and equivalent filter, since the one he had is discontinued, is about $500. Take another $100 or so generously for fish, substrate, and that wood looking thing. So that would be $900 for the swords and indian paintbrush looking things.

LOL I think I ended up with that many "flowery indian paintbrush looking things" after buying 2 bunches at petco for 2.99 after about a month and a half. Maybe its just me but who wants an acrylic tank? scratches is all you end up with

Maybe a premium is charged for his low maintenance algae.

That's gotta be it.. No maybe its the service he charges for his knowledge. He can tell you everything you need to know about growing Indian brush paint things.
