What do you guys do with all fry after the fish give birth? Do you sell them back to pet stores?
No store in my area would by fish unless it was from a reputable breaader.
They do take back fish as trade ins but these go into tanks labeled "trade ins" and come without a guarantee.

Cheers.

i use my convict fry as feeders for my Africans sometimes i give away what i can and the rest are fish food. but convicts breed more than rabbits.

Normally, if I get too many fry, I stop growing the new ones out. I just kind of leave them with all the other fishes and whoever survives gets to grow up. That has cut down all of my guppy spawns to about 4 or 5 survivors instead of 20+. And the rest, I just swap out with a biology teacher at my school for smaller fry.

You become a reputable breeder. Eventually the shops will be calling you. There's always club auctions for the occasional spawn, as well as Craigslist or AquaBid. Selling fish is just like selling anything else, you need to have a bit of a knack for sales.
