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.

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 :)

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