Or- just let the customer know. You are not responsible for their fish. Something can happen out of your control. I'd recommend you make them purchase their own fish- or if you get access to a wholesaler- ask the wholesaler to hold the fish for a week to observe it.

I've watched enough judge judy, get it in writing so each party will know who's responsible for what.

That's tottaly up to you that's just one aspect of my business I started doing a couple years ago and it's having positive results

One quick question are you planning on keeping it simple for now and see how things go?? What will be the services you offer?

Maintenance including:

Water chemistry
Scrubbing
Vacuuming
Once settled includes a canister content wash
Salinity test
Clean approach with footy's and floor mats
Water change with RO including additives
Wipe front
Answer questions and leave them information pamphlets if they can email the question before hand that way i can get them the best answer in writing for them to reference.

I want to leave them a tank folder including a copy of each service with results and the other side for the questions and answers. That way they will be learning! Thats very important!

I hope this works, ive wanted this since i was a little girl with a room full of oceans, buckets, test kits, hoses.... Lol
