I would love to have my own reef tank, but costs are a prohibiting factor. I have a 90 gallon that would be perfect, but just lighting that thing for a reef would probably cost more than my rent. I'm planning on starting a small fowlr
tank and maybe some mushrooms soon so I could get some basic experience.
I'm thinking of just starting doing basic maintenance (water changes, tank cleaning, testing, filter maintenance, etc.) and try to stick to more FO
tanks at first. I know this would limit business a bit, but it would give me more time to become comfortable around various sw
animals and equipment. I have never seen fw
displays in a business before, so I'm pretty sure that would not be a service in much demand, unfortunatley. (I think if businesses realized how much cheaper a fw
tank would be and still pretty, they would converge)
As for possibly crashing someones system, I'll have insurance in case that tragedy happens. (God I hope not)
I understand it is different from fw
. But if I never try, I'll never know if I could do it! And if I get stuck in a rut, I could always ask you guys for help
There needs to be some competition out here. The guy who does the tank in my doctors office is a mess. I was just itching to get my buckets and hoses and algae scrapers out while waiting! Thanks for your input guys. I'll definitley pick up that book and keep reading around.
