what are best fish to breed and sell?
I would like to start breeding fish... but I want to make sure that it's a species that the LFS would be interesting in buying. Not neccesarily to make a profit, just to make sure I can find a home for them. I keep freshwater... my fave fish are various catfishes and danios. Thanks! (I also like inverts... have fiddlers and shrimp)

This will depend on the Law of Supply and Demand in your area. Ask around your local fish stores what fish are commonly demanded and sold.

Julidochromis sp., angelfish, most african cichlids, and some live bearers are always good sellers. But like Lupin says check with your lfs's to see what they can move on a regular basis. Some fish are prolific breeders, while others are not. The newly found Celestial Pearl Danio is a very easy fish to breed and is not as demanding as some species.

I would have to agree with the other two, I would talk with my LFS and find out which ones are the ones they want. Once I get them I could sell Cherry Red Shrimp for $3.00 each as my LFS sells them for $9.75 each. Danios would be another one they would want. BN plecos are a good one also and a good breeder could sell them all over the country, especially albinos.
Angels, Rams, ciclids, bichir, and any other exotic species that can be bred (I don;t know if all of them can be) would be a good choice.
Just remember to ask you LFS what size they want. My LFS will not take them under adult size so for me to raise them to sell I have to have more tanks which makes it really unfeasible.

cherry shrimp are a good one. they don't need a big tank and breed well on their own. whenever i get too many, i just take them to my lfs and get a few bucks for them.
