Those are some great ideas!! The "how to" would definitely work, I could also make some for youtube for online purposes.

I also designed a brochure, which looks nice, to me anyways.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Nah, don't block them. Even naysayers might say something that sparks a new idea.

For example, you apparently live in a less-populated area so PetSmart/Co/Land isn't located there. Which means there are actually some opportunities that you may have which someone living nextdoor to Petwhatever won't have. If you can identify what's needed - but not readily available (since those chains aren't there), that gives you an opportunity.

I think the key to dealing with negativity is to figure out how you can turn it into something positive. LOL

Cool.

Remember to tie it back to YOUR store, too. Ie: "How to create a planted tank -- AND easily buy your tanks/plants/water conditioner right here at my store."

That's right. But no, certain nay-sayers say too much useless bragging stuff :) if I want I can always click the "view post" it allows, next to their name and hidden post ;p

Live plants are not available here. Special tail types LIKE dumbos aren't either. I don't have a dumbo female... I need a halfmoon at least. My male is a dumbo halfmoon. People have been BEGGING for dumbos (and CT and HM but mostly EE)

I am sure you will do amazing. I suggest you dont keep the bettas in cups. You can even save money by not constantly buying cups but instead keeping them in jars and sending them home in bags. You could lose a lot of money through increased deaths of fish in those cups. Also remember that planning is key for success to any entrepreneur. Good luck!

I found it hard to find cups here actually. Jars you can find EVERYWHERE lol.


BTW the AUCTIONEER I mentioned is NOT a business partner as I think someone thought... He is helping VIA finding me jars, tanks, and aquarium accessories.

Sena, WOW! Take's alot of great courage and hard labour to successfully open a pet store! Good on you, i'm sure everything will run smoother than a babies bottom ;)

Just an idea, but breeding shrimp! Who doesn't like shrimp? I'm sure if you breed Amano's or something, people would be interested because they are so easy to care for!

Hmm never thought of shrimp! :) it's true, they are also good for smaller tanks which is important.

On that note I WILL MAKE SURE the buyer KNOWS that plecos must be in larger tanks because I'm tired of seeing the fellas squished into a 10 gallon and grow 6x in 6 months. -.- small doesnt mean neglect.

If I remeber right Amanos are hard to breed. You could pond breed Ghost shrimp. You could breed cherry shrimp varities.
