Always reading n learning
Hello all Im new but then again im old:angler_fish:
I wasnt in a hurry. I suggested to use Bio Spira, Dont know if you ever heard of it you can Introduce fish safely within 24 hours expensive but it does work. Would have cost us like 300.00 to do the tanks but I didnt know anything and 1500.00 literally went down the toilet. I still sell things to Local LFS inverts and stuff. Thats why its hard for me to walk into a lfs and see the prices of there live stock knowing what it really costs before the mark up. If you saw for instince a $100.00 fish in the store it costs the store say $3.50. Prices on Corals unreal. Shop of my own :fishRed: who knows.Wow no kidding. i would be pretty ticked off too. The nerve of some people thinking the know better than you do. I deal with that with my father-in-law but it always blows up in his face LOL. Well why not start up your own shop? By the way I was going to ask how come the shop was up and running in 3 weeks but you kind of explained as I read. If you guys were in that much of a hurry you should have just sold stuff to help people with starting up there their setups and then when they were ready to add livestock you were ready to add yours and sell.
Well then you should keep us posted if your heart leads you in that direction.
It really is something to think about. Maybe i get the first discount since I got you thinking. LOL.If i did do it I would just stick to corals its a lot easier shallower holding tanks. Also would depend on how many people where interested in the coral. It would be internet only that way I could kill the overhead so it would be cheaper I know for a fact I could beat any price what so ever since I would be in it for 70% enjoyment the other 30% would be the money factor. I remember I was selling some corals like elegance for 29.99. Candy cane was like $5.00 a head. I remember one purple acan had 50 heads on it I sold if for $59.99 The guy almost sh&t his pants when I told him the price he couldnt get the money out of his pocket fast enough. There where no sizes in the store like most places are you picked the one you wanted and thats what you got small medium or large all the same price.
You really got me thinking.
