Now Stiphodons are at the average $10 ea.( I've seen his tank!) and there are at least 40 Stiphodons = $ 400

Other equipment and lights I estimate to be worth at least $ 300

There are a large clumps of Cryptocorynes and a lot of Narrow Java Fern as well as three pieces of intricate cypress stumps overgrown with Nana petites, not to mention about 200 stems of Ludvigia 'Red" hybrid, which still sell on this Forum for $2 ea....

So what's there to laugh about?
Where are the anubias or cypress? If you want 1000 dollars for something the least you could do is take a decent pic. I don't see any anubias in that pic. I don't even see the whole tank in that pic. Let alone the things that are making this a 1000 dollar tank.

Wait, I maybe see some anubias in the center.

Define "hundreds" of them. Are we talking hundreds of leaves? Or what?

He has RCS, not CRS. They are not 1 dollar per shrimp. Particularly with hundreds of them.

I can without a doubt say that there are not 500 dollars in plants in that aquarium.
