hi everyone

i was wonder what do my fellow nano-reef due to make the cash to pay for there reef aquarium addiction.

i personally work as a Instrmentation & Controls Engineer for the Company AEP. its not glamous work but i make good money and have fairly good life as of yet. but while i was in college i did every kind of job ranging from pizza cook to working a brewery to aqurium cleaner thats how i started my hobby. so if you guys would like to share what you do to make the coral cash that is so important our lives

 

 

Cheers

scott

I'm in school right now at Western Michigan studying voice. Hoping someday to be a big rich and famous opera singer.....we'll see what happens. I basically live on loans for rent and food, but for the tank I run my own recording business. I specialize in classical music. It does pretty well, enough for me to get my fix of frags and whatnot.

If interested help me buy more frags!

Not sure where you're located, but I know a couple of people that make really good money in pizza delivery. I'm in Florida, so it might do better than other areas because of the tourism.

I'm a computer nerd and make enough to struggle w/my nano addiction, but then I don't think anybody can make enough to cover what we all want! ;)

I'm the equivalent of a Creative Director for a major Web Hosting and Data Center company. With a wife and two kids, and a fairly young family (my wife and I are in our 20's), there isn't always a lot of money for Reefing ... but I tend to find it here and there :)

Well as alot of you guys already know I own Aquatic Acrylic Works. The name is self explaniatory. I also own Picketts Lawn Service & Landscaping. As crazy as it sounds I am looking to open up a new company. I am very interested in starting a company that leases complete marine and fresh water aquarium setups to residential and commercial clients. The contract will only require the customers to fill out a sheet explaining what type of fish, coral, plants that they want. Then sign on the line and write the check. The rest will be up to me.

 

I guess one can say that I love working for myself. I have a BA degree from Purdue in Organizational Leadership and Supervision. I guess if the right opportunity presented itself I would consider selling out and going that route. Never know.

Hey Cow Kid, I'm going to remember you said this. I work for the largest financial institution in the world (can't name them) and they're downsizing like crazy. I will keep this in mind... ;)
