Okay.. so within the last few years.. I have absoulety fallen in love with water species. I love all fish, eels, snails, inverts.. EVERYTHING! I'm even thinking of becoming a freshwater/marine Biologist! I can't help but want to spend every dime I get on my fish.. budget is an issue with me tring to buy two cars.. plus having a son ad putting my fiance threw college, but I still make money for my fish! So now I want to find a way to make money to pay just for my hobby.. of the aqautic world! So I have talked to two LFS and they have both agreed to buy fish from me if I can successfully breed them. The only catch is each fry must be at least 1month old. I must document from time of eggs being noticed, till hatching, feeding times, water change % and how often. Diet, filteration, water, ect. So more or less they want to know how the fish where cared for, for the full month there in my care after being born. I'll get exact species there wanting saturday, and I'll post again on this thread to see if you guys can farther help me. But I am pretty sure Green/Normal Tiger barbs will be a small project one. Talk to my main buyer and she offered me 0.20$ Per fry but they must be 2months old vs most of them being 1month old. She said it'd be a easy challenge for me to start with. They also want discus and offered 15$ Per baby.. must be at least 2 1/2-3inches to sell them. So.. I guess what I'm asking is if you guys have any advice on something easy to breed for someone who loves this.. and wants to make a huge hobby and source of income out of it.(Small income, huge hobby :P!) Okay, I'm a huge rambler if you didn't notice! But one last thing, I want to breed everything.. from snails, and shrimp to livebears and egg laying fish. Well thanks for any comments, help,advice, and anything else!
Thanks, and I love my aquatic hobby and world!
