If you owned a business, what would it be?

Here's Mine:
I'm kinda wanting to start a really awesome aquarium store. Kinda want to do it Mom/Pop Style. Would contain lots of live plants that I would sell lots of cuttings from; possibly breed harder to find snails (snails not carried in most chain pet stores); would NOT carry extremely tiny fish bowls; Staff would be trained about stocking tanks properly, heating tanks, water changes, what fish can be in same tank, etc; would have examples of how to do NPTs and all other substrates....just to name a few things.

Please feel free to add your dream business!

I'd like a shop specializing in arachnids and reptiles.

I have intentions of opening up a garage where I will tune cars, make them faster, look nicer, and etc.


My girlfriend wants to start her our psychology firm.

Hello there, the angel from my nightmare
The shadow in the background of the morgue
The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack & Sally if we want
Where you can always find me
We'll have Halloween on Christmas
And in the night we'll wish this never ends
We'll wish this never ends.

I Miss You

Probably a yarn shop doubling as a comfy place to knit.
Also, something involving gaming (console).

Ditto.

I'm already surrounded by yarn, I might as well make some money too.

I have a few things...all are my favorite things.

a restaurant with down-home style food
or
a petstore where all employees are trained before they enter sales, with experts in each department. Sell only appropriate accessories
or
a handmade soap shop to sell bath and body products.

I'd like to run a homeless shelter for runaway kids, or a soup kitchen; it's not really a business, though.

If I were to have a business, I would also like to have a fish store :) It would be called Toad's Fish Soup, and it would look a lot like Pier 1, but full of fish. It would sell various tanks, 1 gallon and larger, all sizes of heaters, sustainably harvested drift wood and hardscape materials and tons of live plants. I could put together little NPT starter kits, with the tank, soil, substrate and plant lights, and regular tank kits for bettas that would include heaters and sponge filters. Would have a Betta Wall of 5 gallon tanks, each planted and housing a single betta available to be purchased. There would be a section of books on fish keeping, different species, etc.

Oh it would be fun :)

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

That sounds totally awesome! I would totally buy an NPT kit, the whole thing is so confusing

it would be a lot like The Betta Shop, which i REALLY think needs a branch in tennessee.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
