Got back into it after long time...
Hello all! The last time I kept fish (20 gal. rect. tank) for my family was several years ago when I was maybe 10-14 years old. It is a wonder how any of my fish survived back then considering how much bad/incorrect information we had. I read a lot on this site and other sites. I figured I should join to be able to post and see other features that aren't available to guests.
This time around, I certainly wanted to do everything as best as I could in terms of the habitat for the fish. That included cycling, more frequent water testing (API liquid kit :-))/changes, better feeding regimen, etc.
I have two tanks now: 1 for a blue crowntail betta and the other is a 10 gallon. The specs are:
Anyway, I have had a "crazy" idea that I've been pondering for a few weeks. I live in a fairly metro area in New England and believe there could be potential for this type of service. Does anyone think that 1 man, in-home aquarium cleaning service could get off the ground? Let me elaborate a little more on my ideas:
Hi and welcome to Tropical fish keeping!
As for your idea well it could work if the need is there in your area. Using the same equipment in every tank would be risky because of disease as you stated. You could always sanitize the equipment after every use but they need time to dry afterwards. If you had multiple clients in the same day that might be tricky. Soo you would probably need several sets.
Hello and welcome to the forum :wave:
There must be a way to find out if there's an interest or a need to maintain tanks. See if there's an active aquatic club in your area that meets on a regular basis and feel it out.
Good luck and happy fishkeeping :)
hello and warm welcome :-D
