Unfortunately not joking
But Australia has different pricing and these would be 4 or 6 ft tanks with say nice wood stands. Depth 2 or 2.5ft so a PAR meter not needed but I think useful.
Not completely overboard but nice equipment.
As a rule of thumb if I ever manage to get rid of a sofa so I can get another large tank, I'd say I would allow $2,500 for basic FW
. Then $4,000 for planted. SW
I'm told could run to 10 grand. The equipment would be better now but my neighbour still mentions a guy he knows that has a burglar alarm and backup power generator - not for break-ins but so if power goes down, he gets alarm sent, rushes home to switch generator on
