I'm in a very similar situation space. You should ask PoppaRyno, he's the one with the $35000 fish room and he still makes some money off fish. I would say get a good relation with your LFS
. The guy at mine kinda knows me now and has offered reduced prices for my age which I have turned down. Also if you continue loving fish and have a good LFS
relation for pretty much your whole life than you can also get reduced prices in the future. Those are my tips but I'm only 13, so you might want to listen to the wiser adults.
