would you pay this much for this tank?
 
so i was surfing craigslist for a new tank when i came across this
http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/hsh/3031687314.html

its a 46gal bowfront, the guy wants $1500 for it.

No, I might do $350 if the heater, stand and everything else is included and it was what I was after. The guy doesn't even know what kind of plants he has.

That's just silly. The whole thing is covered in algae too...

That tank for sure doesn't worth that money! Especially the rimed tank!

Some people just really misjudge value when it comes to their own possessions. Send him a picture of a $1500 tank and see what he says.

i emailed him asking if it was a typo. if he says no, then i'll have to email him a photo of a real $1500 tank

Yikes. I don't think so. Cleaning that up would be project... and it's used.

Oh man how insulting. He called rotala rotundifolia "indian paintbrush looking things" LOL

No, see I think he knows how much this is worth, after all he bought it, he is just hoping to make a profit off of someone that doesn't know better. He's being unethical IMO.

Yes. But something brand new is worth twice as much as something used. He wants the origional cost PLUS the profit.

That was my point exactly, he knows exactly how much he paid for it and he wants to make a profit off of someone who doesn't know better.
