FOR SALE & PROFIT

So you think you might be able to make some money using
my aquarium slate designs? Well I say ..."Good
You may be wondering why I chose to freely give
up the methods and design information.
Well , when the idea of slotting slate sections
together for aquarium aquascaping first came to me I
realized that even though it may prove successful and
popular, it was not something I wanted to try to develop
into a huge business.
For one thing I knew that I would quickly get competition.
It's too simple an idea and process to avoid being copied.
I also knew that my location, a Canadian island that's an
expensive ferry ride from a city and pet stores, would
make competing price wise an impossibility.
Secondly, there is my environmental position. I already
feel a lot of guilt about shipping my vases. The idea of
another business that involved shipping lots of rocks
around the planet did not feel very comfortable.
Encouraging people to use their local stone in their fish
tanks instead of resin and silicone became an idea I
could support. Encouraging a lot of small scale entrepreneurs
to service their own regions became my goal.
Thirdly, I already have a business that takes up all my
time. If you'll pardon the expression. I have other fish
So I decided to publish my designs and the methods
involved even if it meant seeing others profit from my
idea more than I could.
