i'm going to write up complete instructions, throw a large price tag on it, and see if it sells. that way a willing customer (experienced in freshwater)can take home an established marine tank and maintain it without extensive knowledge and effort.
Is this misworded as well? This continues to be dangerous as you are specifically saying that you will be sending home an aquarium with livestock to someone without having extensive knowledge if proper husbandry. IME
, establishing the nitrogen cycle was a no-brainer, it was all of the various aspects of saltwater husbandry that was the most confusing yet was the most important.
My fear is that, even with the instructions, people may be going home with a tank they assume is stable....yet have no idea really how to keep it that way (imo
, even an experience fw
aquarists starts out as a sw
newbie). Also, what if it sells after only a few weeks in your store? I can attest to the fact that a marine tank is not really "established" (except for the nitrogen cycle) for many months.
I'm sure you are now sick of hearing this repeated, but I have to continue to say that it is a dangerous idea....regardless of whether you use aquacultured livestock. The moral end of it is probably annoying you, but it evenly ties into your future sales and the success of this project as well.
