They really aren't into spending. They just want the tank to be presentable and entertain the customers. I'd really like to remove all the coral and just make it a fowlr
with some softies running rampant and let them find another maintenance guy, but I would feel for the fish. When I talk to the owner, he's always like "put a shark egg in there...that was cool when the last guy did that. Just before I took the tank over there was a pipe fish in it just swimming around at the top. Very little live rock and probably no pods
. I told him those fish are like seahorses yada yada yada. The next day there was a fish net in the tank- submerged, just in there, touching the bottom, laying against the rock. I said , "you dropped your fish net in the tank". He said "it's for the fish to hold on to".
