The rest are pretty much easy to get and not very expensive.
If you intend to also make money you must think if what is harder to "multiply" thus making it more wanted on the market(harder to get = more expensive).
Crystal red/black shrimps sell here for... last time i looked about 10-15 USD/piece. Sure prices can go way up and down but ATM 10 usd/1 shrimp is almost as good as gold
Beat that with a guppy or pleco.
Well, on aquabid, the shrimp (for the money I was willing to invest) would be sellable for about $2-3... I wouldn't waste my money buying a pitifully small number (like 3) SSS+, only to have one die in shipping, and have a tank full of ridiculously inbred shrimp.
The B/C grades I was considering, I'd be lucky to sell them for a couple dollars each. CBS, on the other hand, don't seem to be as affected by grading. Again though, they'd only go for about $2-3 online, and local, I dunno how well they would sell.
