It takes Time, Money, Effort and Experience to get a shop up and running... not to mention luck .... I am really good friends with a few LFS owners who have some pretty successful businesses and there is a lot to it...

Great idea, and we all have dreamed about that at some time.
At least I have. :)

And you have to decide what your ethics will be in a fishstore...

Imagine a moment when you know the rent for the shop is due, bills must be payed after a big investment like that and money is tight, very tight.
You've been eating hamburgers for 3 months on end...

What if someone comes upto the counter and tells you he wants to buy 5 of your oscars , and he wants to buy that lovely 90Gl bowfront tank along with them...plus the big filter and all the other equipment he needs to start up the 90Gl. And food to last the fish for a year...

And imagine the guy being stubborn, and accidentally you heard him say to his wife: "if i cannot get those fish, I'm gonna forget the whole deal, and buy a dog". :dry:

What do you tell him??? :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:
