Still have the itch to "make it in the bigs" in coral farming??? Keep in mind that it is "farming" and that the bigger you get, the more work it is. A farm is something that you get tied to. You can't just walk away from it for a week or two of vacation and then come back and pick up where you left off. Someone has to be there to tend the livestock, check each tank to see that it is running properly and to answer the phone.
Still want to do it? Then start planning the end facility that will be needed. You have a basic idea of where you want to end up, so start planning steps to get there. You might want to convert that spare bedroom, the basement, the garage (?) into a coral room to get started. Here is Jake Levi's plan for making $50,000 per year to get you started.
In my next article in this series we will be delving into the myriad of ways there are to save a lot of money in a large or small set up. Until then be sure to go to the Buy/Sell/Trade Folder in our About Saltwater Aquariums Community Bulletin Board and start posting away.
