Atitagain Posted August 21, 2021 Share Posted August 21, 2021 Not usually the type of person who ask for help in this way, usually do research and trouble shoot problems. But I need to cut cost ASAP because if I don’t I will have to break down or at least minimize how many tanks I operate. The reason I have to do this I would most certainly make the sacrifice, but if I’m capable to keep what I have or even expand slowly would be my preference. ive recently had 3 of my grandchildren placed in my home and it seems like it will be long term. Their ages are 3,2,and 1 🤪crazy I know. Luckily we are in a financial situation I could retire to care for them. But we have to cut cost across the board, including the fish room of course because it is just a hobby. But if I can reduce cost and maybe make a little money from it… What I came up with so far: -heat the room instead of each tank. Will have to get a bigger dehumidifier and I guess a space heater? What type should be used that is safe for long term operating? -using more plants to cut down on water changes -cutting down light time on tanks that don’t have plants -selling fish, won’t have a lot of time to market and promote I’m limited time I can leave the house What are some ways you cut cost? Don’t wanna use cheap food really believe quality food is key to healthy fish. to be clear I’m not looking for any financial help I’m not in desperation mode and would give the hobby up before it ever came to that. And minimizing is always on the table. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
