Aquarium Maintenance Business
An aquarium maintenance business may be right for you if:
1) You love tropical
2) You are knowledgeable about
how to care for aquariums and a variety of fish?
are interested in pursuing a pet business. This business can be started
on its own or combined with other pet services!
Over half of the pets owned
in the U.S. are FISH (including both fresh water and salt water)!
Considering that statistic, this is one of
my pet business ideas which can be started easily from your home or become mobile using your current vehicle. . .
Start your business providing these cleaning services for
“Goldy” Fish and her friends -- keeping your "people" friends happy
with the serenity and calm knowing the tank is being well maintained to keep "Goldy" and her friends healthy (without any fuss by her owners!)
This is a terrific service
for busy fish owners who want to keep up their aquarium maintenance along with the
beauty and serenity provided in the environment the aquarium creates.
Busy individuals are terrific
clients for your aquarium maintenance business! Everyone has great
intentions of keeping their aquarium clean, but many fall behind often to the peril of
Establish your service by scheduling (bi-weekly, monthly) with “Goldy’s”
owners to make sure her aquarium is cleaned and well maintained on a specific
schedule (that’s flexible with your schedule, of course!)
I'd consider expanding this pet business idea to
commercial organizations – offices, medical facilities, day care centers, and nursing homes who
provide aquariums for a peaceful or educational setting. Provide additional tropical fish, food, supplies,
filtration parts/filters, plants, and decorations.
you can provide consulting services on how to set-up different aquarium
scenes including compatible fish species, a variety of foliage, rocky
caverns, or sunken pirate ships to allow your clients to personalize
their aquariums to their personal preferences. Then provide the
set-up services to develop the aquascape they're looking for with a
calm, serene aquarium scene . . .
This article published by the Small Business Chronicle provides some additional information for starting an aquarium service.
