Yea, I think Choclate is right.... I'm pretty sure Amano's are hard to breed, but are very hardy!

Oh, I certainly hope you become a success! Im surrounded by generic petstores, but I ALWAYS shop at the local Tidal Aquatics. They are all dedicated to their fish and keep amazing care of their fish.

Plus, its WONDERFUL to be surrounded by so much glass and water. I dont know about others, but besides the dedication to fish, the aquarium feel is another reason I go.

I had gone to "Aquarium Central" and they could care less. I feel, that I want to bring the best possible customer service and care, plus show case healthy and active fish. New fish will have "NEW: NOT YET FOR SALE" or something as a sign, since they could be sick from the stress of shipping.


Tuesday I am going to Edmonton to find more stock ^_^

Oh, how horrible. When I was 13, the reason I got into bettas was a store on the corner from my fathers called "The Fish Place".

I got my first CT (called a kingtail/combtail then) and a pair of plakat females to take home to pair with my Blue VT.

Customer service is why I became obsessed! You have the chance to start the seed of fish frenzy in others! I envy your spunk!

I think like a customer. "What would I want to see, entering a store?"

Obviously: healthy stock, healthy plants, clean tanks, friendly worker(s).

I usually see: Dying or dead stock, plants covered in black hair algae (snagged my one female by the gills with that junk), dirty tanks, and rude, naive, or uncaring workers.

On my blog I gave a completely honest review on any pet store I set foot in.

From what I've been reading, it sounds like you can't send/receive fish to/from the US. Why not? (What prohibits it?) I know there are people in the US who have the necessary licenses to import fish from Thailand, etc. Is there a way for you to become eligible to receive fish from someplace overseas?

Someone needs to be supplying the big chain stores in Canada. Either they're importing fish, or there are some large-scale Canadian breeders. If they're being imported, how did the stores get around the import "block?" If there's a way -- can YOU do it too, or become involved in the process?

Any fish magazines? If so, write fish-related articles and submit them to the magazine. If they get printed, you'll get paid. (Not a lot, but something. AND you'll be able to bill yourself as a published writer on fish-related topics.)

Also, you can hang the framed articles that you've written in your store.

Ooh sell the typical plants that should not be in aquariums. But sell them properly like as terrium plants.
