Default Starting an Aquatic shop

Hi,

I'm thinking more and more about starting an aquatic shop in my town. Basically there isnt any specialist store soley for aquatics and so i think theres a gap in the market...
Raising the captial is the biggest worry as is making the business work and not losing a tone of cash!

Has anyone actually started such a business and made it a sucess?

I was thinking about starting a professional site first of all and selling online to get a taste for the trade? But then i have the problem of purchasing stock at an affordable price and selling it on. I doubt i'd have the means to hold stock really...

any info would be welcome!
