Yes it is the play is totally different.
A fish is a fish, fair enough and you do get people who spew just as bad at 1000nl as opposed to 10nl. However, the biggest difference is that there are thousands at 10nl where at 1000nl, there are so much less probably a hand full of players spread over the limits., Also; this is a quote from a high stakes player I remember distinctly (cant remember his name though) he said which I believe to be true; a fish at say a $5000 SnG is a lot better than your average fish at a micro game..

That's fair enough too. I also took/take that line when playing 2nl/5nl occasionally, however it still doesn't mean I just shove all in for example and my winrate is still huge compared to other limits and you should still expect great results. I also take higher limits much more seriously, but don't have as good as results as I do at say 2nl but that is what should be expected. There's no reason you shouldn't expect great results unless you're literally playing like a donkey(shoving all in with bottom pair for example), which I assume you don't and if you're then you may aswell just go spew at play money?
