Will it be popular then? Thank you! This question's been haunting me for days.
Again this is strictly conjecture and personal opinion, but this is the internet so...
My opinion is that price is one reason, not the only reason. Availability and product knowledge are some others.
If they were less expensive I imagine that at least more diehard enthusiasts would have them. I'm not sure about the general public who are more casual about fish keeping and the aesthetic of their tank.
Right now, many of the low iron tanks are not in the more common U.S. aquarium sizes, so finding stands, hoods, canopies, etc, is not as easy.
There are many possible reasons. I see availability, product knowledge and marketing as even more important than cost.
