I think I'll do it. I can be exceptionally tactful.

so i sent the guy an email outing myself and telling him that his tank was over priced. i think i worded it nicely.

"i have to apologize, i have have three planted tanks. i know a lot about them, i was trying to see what you had that would make this tank worth $1500, and to be frank the tank is not worth $1500. a planted tank does not become more valuable because it is established. just like everything else the value goes down as the items in the tank age. even if you had pressurized CO2 and the CO2 tank, bubble counter, drop checker, regulator were included, you do not have a $1500 tank. to be that kind of a tank you have to have a custom built tank that is rimless, have pressurized CO2, know exactly what all of your plants are, have a high tech light set-up(that includes auto dimmers and LED), and have a $700 fish in your tank.

all of that said i truly hope that your price is because of emotional investment in the tank, or not know what a planted tank is worth and not because you are trying to screw some unsuspecting soul out of their hard earned money."


i'm looking forward to a response

Will

That's perfect.
I emailed,
"Do you really want to sell this, or are you just maybe trying to make a certain person think you're trying to sell it?"

Maybe it's like that episode of Full House where Danny doesn't actually want to sell his stuff so he had crazy high prices on everything at his yard sale.

...because that's what "gas injector" makes me think, fuel-injected engines or filling a car's gas tank or something... sounds...industrial or automotive.
