I have a place in mind to rent. I also have a potential investor waiting for a finialized business plan from me (I never took any business classes and man is this overwhelming lol). Mainly he wants solid start up costs and an estimated time of return along with profit margins, expenses, etc you get the picture lol

i like your thoughts on the hi-res camera. one thing to consider for photography is that buying used can often be better than buying new. alot of people sell lenses as they upgrade etc. and you can do wonders with something like a canon t1i which is their basic amateur "pro" camera. as far as actual macro lenses you will have to ask someone else, but consider used for some you will spend less money.

Ok people back again on the subject lol. So what would be your reccomendations on large external pumps to run a 12' lagoon style tank? Also for any of you running MASSIVE skimmers, what system will give me my most bang for my buck operating on 2-3 thousand gallons. I was thinking either one 6'er or two or three smaller skimmers rated for around 750-1000 gallons a piece.
