true... I was basing it on things I can get a good price on..

There's a 6-pack of 1 inch bristlenose albinos for $22 I was considering.

1) crystal red shrimp/crystal black shrimp
2) Various nerite snails- zebra, corona, and ruby
3)Celestial Pearl Danio
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 or weed
Beat that with a guppy or pleco.


I expect nothing. I fear no one. I am free.
Excuse my bad and rusty english but i did not have your luck to be born or to live in a country where the main language is english.
P.S I am not rude, i just hate stupidity and act accordingly.

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.
