I know some people who do that for a living here. My dream job is starting a lfs around my house. The nearest one is two hours and a half away. Most people where I live pay to have their tanks scaped and maintenanced. I take care of it myself because I think it's fun to run a tank.

I don't understand why people wouldn't want to take care of their own tank. To see all your hard work pay off is awesome. From the plumbing to the scaping, saltwater tanking is truly a form of art.

For the most part I agree it is ridiculous but I do understand some people needing help especially when they work out of town a lot or just have super busy work schedules. No reason someone shouldn't get to enjoy a reef if they got the money and not the time lol

Exactly. I work 7 days a week so I understand that one. Don't know what I'd do if I were out of town...don't have the money to hire people. I just know for me the maintenance is half the fun.
