That doesn't shock me. Who was in the video - 3 or 4 guys? Full day of work just on the installation? A plumber as well. Prior to that, you've got the design, and the manufacture. How much glass and what thickness? Just the glass would set you back a few quid. Bucket after bucket of gravel. Beautiful river stones. Driftwood. Big bits. I know what it cost me to buy and set up my 250-litre and it was on sale. Frankly, that's a lot of money, but I can see where it went. As for value, people could easily spend that sort of money on interior design, repainting, buying new furniture, etc. I'd rather have Piglet in my loungeroom than a new sofa..... but then I'm a fish nut
