Since it is such a small start-up, I am thinking of sampling customer expectations that way and it may also help avoid people being too disappointed (who, e.g., took a drive to get here; although I am pro honesty in advertising and will advertise the venture for what it is - a tiny start-up... because people hear Public Aquarium and think of those huge multi-million-billion $$$ facilities and here I am with a 5-figure budget...).
If I am underpaid, by my standards, then we may have to switch to a standard cover charge of... oh, maybe $3 for the first several months. As we add more tanks and fish, the price will rise...
