Thanks for the reply :), Yeah I have done this before, on a small scale I bred mollies, I had one male and female, I was still giving 30-40 fry a month to the pet store i lived near LOL. I am not to sure what
to breed this time, I have sent a couple emails out to wholesalers close to me, seeing what they are in need of?. I also have a few pet stores in my city I am going to contact to see what fish they need/want. this will detreem what type of stock I keep. I also would like to breed my Betta, he is a nice fish, with a good temperment, I would like to find a nice mate for him.
Do you sell your stock to pet stores or to wholesalers?, I am curious as to how much they buy from you
at one time, and how they buy the stock, do they pay buy bag or per fish?
