Yes the Girlfriend didn't have a clue. Her statement to me was Their just fish for Gods sake. She found out it was easier, and cheaper to replace her then it was the fish. Which was the most logical thing to do.
I once had a tank of Tiger Oscar's (two in the tank.) My oldest son at 4 decided to feed them one morning with roast beef and cheese. They lived stuffed them selves on the roast beef. LOL
It's going to run about $1500.00 to do the electric in the basement which I don't think is bad, and a 200 amp service just for the tanks might be a little much but it will be the right choice.
You do realize that even the managers of the big box stores can purchase fish from local breeders. They do have that power and as long as the stock is good and healthy they do pay wholesale price.
