    Maybe the work one needs to put in and then still pay that price?

    Not everyone can put silicone to glass and make a tank.... The risk... Will it hold... Will it leak... Will the end look professional.... Etc

    And remember loads of people kicking the hobby and lots to pick and choose from almost free to a few rand... Even the new tanks are so cheap...

    Just my 2c

    Yeah I've been thinking of reducing the price but there comes a point where I'm losing to much money:(

    Fully understand its niche market. Most people just want the tank and add water. :tt2:

    I've seen whole new tanks going for 12K a bit bigger then this but only the tank so depends on where you look I guess

    Maybe add the option of delivery and assembly by you? I looked at this and thought its a great deal, but the risk of building it wrong will put most people off
