im new here, i am a college student and i am looking for a pet that is low maintenance and inexpensive, i have turned to owning a lobster, i know that the tank and the chemicals and such will be expensive but i find that it is an investment that is cheaper to other alternatives such as cats or dogs which cost around 2-3k a year to maintain and there is a lot more that follows with maintaining a dog or a cat. So i have turned to owning a lobster, i am looking to buy a 5 pound lobster from the grocery store but i don't know where to start with a tank or a filter or how to maintain the tank with chemicals, i want something so that in the future i can possibly add more fish and take out the lobster but right now i feel that owning a lobster would be a cool thing to invest in. Can someone give me somewhere to start? im looking for a starter kit or something of that nature, i am 100% open to everything and am looking to do it right, im not just a college kid trying to look cool i really feel that fish tanks really add an aura to the room. Any help?
