Remember with most species of fish that you will need enough room to raise them to sellable size which could mean 3 months to a year of feeding and caring for them before being to sell them. My LFS won't take them until they are large enough and some species have to be sexable before they will take them. I get $0.65 for swords and it takes about 3 months to get to sellable size.

convicts are almost impossible to sell the water in my area is v-hard so soft water fish are more expensive than say malawis as more effort goes into keeping the conditions right the only soft water fish ive bred is a type of apisto that can torerate harder water i sell mine to a local dealer and i get £1.30 each and he sells them for £4 while fish like discus go for about £20 for a baby and up to and above £200 for an adult i would look apon any fish you sell as an added bonus and not as a possible income

Why dont you try your hand at smaller, easier fish before going onto discus and angelfish? I would recommend danios and tetras (black skirts), they are hardy enough fish, and I believe they are easier to breed.
