A little help on my School Project
K. I got this crazy school project for Economics where I gotta create a business and I gotta simulate it life-like for a month(to see if I earn or loose profits and capital). I decided to create a fish store so can you guys help me with this? You notice the huge wall setups fish stores always have? Where they have all the fish tanks in one huge wall set-up with all those tanks. I need to know how much one of those costs including lighting, filtration, and any equipments being used by the tank(not including stuff like gravel,fish food, fish, decor ect.) just the main stucture. I need close to precise costs. I would do it on my own but my lfs wont lend me info, and I know wolly-world(Wal-Mart) always takes shortcuts and probably dont even have the right equipment so no bother with them. I need one for a saltwater and freshwater setup. Thanks a bunch guys! :D

If it helps, the general markup by a LFS is 60% so you can take their prices and be able to calculate a general idea of what they cost wholesale.

i.e. My LFS sells 20 gallon tanks for $60 so their cost is about $37.50.
