    Does it need to be strong enough to grow corals? If so what type? I've got a 48" 2 bulb T5HO, not sure if it's enough for your needs though.

    I think it's a fair price, but yah bit large for most tanks. Wish it woulda been up for sale when I was originally looking, woulda saved some heartache for me and cost about the same or less :spend:

    That is kinda surprising. Guess for the people with larger tanks that don't want to wait for a fish to grow out.

    The buildup of CO2 will cause the PH to drop, lights out will exacerbate the situation. At what rate/intensity varies substantially so it could be a non-issue or an actual issue. Bigger overarching reason is to not waste CO2 on plants that aren't gonna use it. It's universally true.

    Just be sure to keep track of expenses. At the highest level you'll be able to deduct expenses from "income" if you report it to the IRS so that you won't have to pay taxes on it. Worst case is you save up expenses and get a "big'ol" tax deduction when it gathers steam and produces income that the IRS cares about.

    Like TheFredPit mentioned it kinda just depends on how dedicated/scaled you want to get. If it's small time then a flat $5 would probably be good and it wouldn't really get the IRS's attention at all. If you scale up and decide to go the 501 c3 route then there will likely be some more leg work. If you want to do no profit then just price the fish based on what they cost you (gas (fish pickup)/food/water/electricity) oh and don't forget to...

    - - - Updated - - - Sorry for such a delay with pictures. I'm quiet forgetful if I don't have the pictures in hand 24/7 lol The above picture is from right after my replanting after the dwarf baby tears were nuked. Algae has been an issue for a bit. Nitrates way to high most likely the cause, in the middle of correcting. Also got 4 ottos, 3 common plecos, 2 amano shrimp (barbs haven't touched them yet *knock on wood*), and 6 false julie...

    I can vouch for these. Absolutely beautiful group of fish, saw them when I picked up his Congo tetras.

    Still interested in the fish. Cash or trade for some of the rocks if you want. If you could close your other thread so it doesn't cause confusion.

    They get most of their fish from Florida so Irma messed up supply for a bit. Should get back on track sooner rather than later But I second the default shop, it's about an 1/1.5 hours from my house but I still end up making the trip anytime I need plants/fish/knowledge.

    snow999ball replied to a thread New tank plumbing in Tank Setups
    I'm a huge fan of sumps, so I recommend it. I don't plan to ever have a tank that isn't drilled after this 75g.:spend: Ready made can work. DIY can be customized to work exactly how you want it to, and depending on how you do it you can save a boatload of $$$$. (I've converted a 55g to a sump, best $50 total ever)

    A few ways. Find comps and price at/around the price others are selling at at an increase/decrease in price based on your observed quality... Or price them for what you want. If they sell great, if they don't lower the price. List them at crazy high prices and gradually lower until people buy to guarantee the highest amount paid to you. Or see what a fish store will give you for them... then double the price. From experiance fish...

    It won't really hurt the fish, unless you're caring for some really sensitive fish. The lack of CO2 would more likely cause a slight algae outbreak if anything.

    There's a fire management place that will fill your tank up with CO2 in Dallas. They have pretty solid prices from what I've seen, I don't remember the price though. Never been cause of distance/hours. http://www.baconfire.com/CO2-Cylinders.html I trade my tank out at a liquor shop. They don't fill which I was sad about, but got impatient and didn't have to many options. got a non-shiny tank for my shiny tank lmao....
