JamJar created the topic: Starting a small business

Hey everyone :)

So I've found a gap in the market here in the Middle East and that is custom aquariums :D

I've build quite a few in my time and they have always come out perfect!

I will also be making COFFEE TABLE tanks for smaller fish which i think could be quite popular..

SHALL I POST PICS OF HOW TO MAKE THESE TANKS AND STANDS ETC AS I GO? WOULD PEOPLE ON HERE BE INTERESTED ?

THANKS GUYS! :lol:

Yes! Show us lots of pictures, especially if they resemble your avatar!

OTOH, your forum name brings to mind Jar Jar.



I think one of our mods, Darth Something-Or-Other, might have a problem with Jar Jar. :whistle:

hahaha thanks guys :)

I've got my first potential client he is sending through the dimensions for a quotation tomorrow :)

and I've been called jamjar for years! it was all because i used to keep my marijuana in a jamjar so it would cure! even when me and my friend run out of buds to smoke id have 5 or 6 jars full but no1 could smoke it until i was satisfied with my curing process :P

anyway ontopic I'm having bait of a drama with my big tank project! sand is soooo expensive! i live in a bloody desert and i can't afford to put sand in my aquarium! can't i just use the sand from the desert? or building sand?

thanks for making me laugh by the way haha :lol:

Try pool sand. It is not made for aquariums, but is perfectly good and a lot cheaper. But, also, aren't you in the Middle East? Isn't there, like, a lot of sand there, all over the place? :) Or am I adhering to a stereo-type?

Yeah i live in a desert…. literally… i walk out my apartment and I'm standing on 100,000,000,000 tons of sand but its got bits of gravel in it and fag buts and got knows what..

i also have about 2 tons of sand from builders merchant but again its like lovely aquarium sand lol its got bits of rock here and there.. but i suppose it would make it look a lot more realistic…

how would i go about cleaning this sand if i was to use it?

thanks for quick replies!!

:D

:lol: Fag buts means something totally different than cigarettes here in the USA.


Sounds like your business is hitting the ground running. Make a quality product and you should do well.

Pool filter sand is much less dirty than builders sand or playground sand.
