Another of Choc's ideas that would be easy to implement, if you like plants (and not just animals).

And even if you decide not to sell terrarium plants -- this would be good info to include in a "How to create a planted tank" class, because you'd want your customers to know the difference between aquatic, semi-aquatic and non-aquatic plants.

Haha, you could have fun with it --> Have a class called: "Can I stick this thing in my tank?" where you discuss items and plants that are appropriate and/or inappropriate to put in a tank.

Yes, that would be another good idea for 'customer information' sessions or handouts.

Some lucky bettas, (like Carter,) get a whole 10 gal tank for themselves. But a lot of people would like to have a few other aquatic tankmates in there, too. So they'd need to know what animals are compatible with bettas.

And, of course, these tankmates could be sold in your store, too.

Good ideas, Choclate!

Magazines don't need to be local. You could write an article and submit it to any fish magazine, regardless of where they're located.... If you want to find one, do a google search for 'aquarium magazine' or 'fishkeeping magazine' or, well, any other terms you can think of.

If you find a good one, you could even stock it in your store.

Not just plants for aquariums, but the knowledge of what ITEMS are safe would be good as well. Example: plastic, rubber, marbles, porous rocks, metal, terricotta, etc.

Sena All I want to say is You can do this!. You have a great idea and the knowledge! I think your pricing is just right.

I would love to go to a store or and online store that could give me the best information about what Im buying.

I would keep the store just fish and all the stuff they need to be healthy and happy. Theres not many around anymore where I live.

Good Luck to you! Go where your heart desires- And follow your dream!!!!!!!

Choclate, it is frustrating. I have to order my stock in, from breeders around Canada, or go to Edmonton (which I am Tuesday). HOWEVER in my area people just throw away fish tanks and supplies So there is good and bad.

I may just keep it as a fish store, or incorporate reptiles too! (Amphibians are falling under the fish category currently)

If reptiles are popular then sell them. Also Dog/Cat supplies.

You could sell newts. At a fish store in my town, they had a lovely display of a half filled tank with some newts and fish living together. It was pleasing to the eye. The rocks above water were very nice, almost zen like.
