    Even though the other shops has a lot of marine supplies, it would be nice if there is a marine supplier that stocks live stock as well as the dry stock. We would like to hear what your thoughts are as we would like to involve animal protection groups as well. A new marine fish could be right around the corner then and of course we would refer Marine Aquariums SA to all our clients...

    I think if you do it, try to also market ready set up tanks, with cured rock etc, and a pair of clowns, as I think you would have to establish the market first, as there is not many tanks in the bay, probably only 6 or 7 serious reefers, then a few that have tanks that they have not spent a cent on and throw any rubbish with gills in.

    I think if you could sell already cycled/settled tanks, you could build up a potential market.

    this I will be doing yes magman very nice concept you have there I will be doing that . I will also be building tanks stands and wooden cabinets for tanks as I am a carpenter , I will be selling second hand things to for the people who can not really afford . I do have a breeding pair of clown fish so I will be raising them as well and it is a good starting off fish.
