Wow, great set-up. Very impressed with the amount of work that went into this.

Wondering about the business end of things. You mentioned that you put $21k into this -- do you have an idea of how many fish you need to sell to recoup that money (plus cover whatever small amount of overhead you have -- electricity, conditioners, equipment/supplies, etc.)?

And I don't know the laws in MS, but do you have any problems with running a commercial operation on a residential property? If you have 9 acres I'm imagining you might have an ag exemption or something. I won't even ask about insurance b/c I saw your opinions on that earlier.

Finally, how are you marketing? Do you have a website? Just wondering how people can find you and your fish!

Best of luck -- seems like a dream project and how fortunate that you can get it started so young!

It will take awhile too recoupee the money but that goes with any buisness. In time i will have a steady supply of fish to sell.

As fas as marketing.... i need so ideas for a buisness name. Im looking for something that resembles me and my families principles and morales. One that i thought of was "Father's Little Fishes." Not sure though lol. Need something catchy but simple. As soon as i get a name i can setup a website.

As far as commercial on residential.... i dont know what your talking about, this is a storage shed.

Okay...I'll give it a shot. Might sound corny, but here's what my daughter and I came up with...BTW, I'm not sure if any of these are already business and don't know if there are copyright laws with small businesses or not. I am an artist and recall running into a problem with my business name because of one made up word that was similar to another artist first name. I tried to incoorporate "Father" into some of them.

One Stop Cichlid Shop (i think your focus is Cichlids right?)
Fishtopia
"Your first name" Tropicals
"your First name" Tropical Fish
Got Fins?
Fish R US (not sure about the copyright...you may not be able to use the R Us part)
Fishinatank
Father's Gill Shop
"Your first name" Gill Shop
"Your First Name" Fishy Shop
Father's Fish House
Underwater Pets
Wet Pets
That Fish Place
I've Got Fish
We've Got Fish
The Fish Shack
Where The Fish Are


Okay...that list should give you a direction. Almost got carried away HaHa! Having a lot of fun coming up with names.

I think this could really turn into a thriving business one day. Have you applied with the state for a business license or becoming a corporation?

Can you list all what types of fish you have?

Tip: If you apply to incorporate the business, apply in Delaware, Texas or Nevada. They have the best corporate laws. Delaware doesn't charge income tax on businesses that don't do business in the state. Nevada doesn't charge either corporate income tax or personal income tax at all.

All those are great ideas but they sound like pet shops to me, not a hatchery/breeder. Lets keep trying lol.

Okay!

How about Your families name infront of Hatchery. I will use the last name Smith as example.

-ie-
Smith's Hatchery
The Smith's Family Hatchery

~or something like:

Tropical Fish Specialty Hatchery
Fish is My Specialty
Tropicals Hatchery
Fish is my Thang

Hatchery should be plural not singular. Sounds better. My aunt and uncle combined their names to come up with SuMac Tropical Fish Hatcheries back in 1950. Maybe something along those lines for you?
