the really sad part of it is that $1000 of equipment is really probably only worth $100 in actual materials/labor.
this industry has some of the most outlandishly priced stuff ever.
got an add from marine depot for Tunze pump on sale for only
sorry, for that kinda money I'll stick my hand in the tank and swish the water around myself.
and that's the small one, it's big brother is almost $600!
I don't get, do people buy this overpriced stuff for bragging rights or something?
My little 10 gallon planted tank cost me about $25 to set-up, including the price of the tank and it rivals some of the ones I've seen here with all the newfangled gismos and gadgets, LED
's and C02 stuff.
spending more $$$ doesn't always mean it will yield better results.
