$2800 in one month for my tank. Have about another $600 or so to finish everything, and then will come the livestock bill...

Me too!!! I have actually been entertaining that thought for a while. I am a secretary and I really think a fish store would be really cool to own! There are enought sick people like us out there. It could be very profitable.

Maybe you should move closer to Panama City and we could be co-owners!

I can't imagine that a little mom and pop fish store would be able to turn much of a profit. Here in Peoria they are just barely hanging on. SuperPets, PetSmart, and Petco have taken over everything.
