    i finally did it!!!! i started my company, Its called "The Fish Hunt" (The name started as a joke with my girlfreind because Hunt is my last name, and it happened to stick)I have business cards already, i set up my first tank today at Midas, they are leasing the whole setup from me. They wanted to go with a freshwater planted. it was still a little cloudy when i left, but i think it looks pretty sweet. it is a 55 gal. I used black flourite sand, about 3 to 4", I found some nice pieces of Malaysian driftwood, i found some nice healthy plants and stocked it pretty full. now all i have to do is wait !! if it turns out half as nice as it is in my head, it will be a good looking tank.. plus it is nice to get paid for what you love to do

    Hey, congrats! I really like the look of black flourite in FW tanks.

    You should post some pictures, once the water has cleared tomorrow (or whenever you have time). ;)

    just went and stood in the rain looking at the tank through the lobby window. it looks really good, it is still just a little hazey. i cant wait to go in there on mon so i can see it up close. i planted all of the plants pretty much blind because the water was so hazey, but i think it turned out good.. should have pics soon
