    What's a high demand fish that you don't find much that i could breed and sell? Just trying to make a little profit.

    I thought there were a lot of betta breeders? Plus bettas are literally in every fish and pet store.

    Not to me. The process seems understandable. I thought betta breeders were popular. Guess not.

    Most killifish species arent availible in stores, and as such are often overlooked. But they tend to he hardy and if you choose one of the more colorful or active species you shouldnt have too much trouble selling them.

    Dario dario is another good choice but are more. Common (still cant find in your average lfs though).

    Edit: if you are willing to put a lot of time into it, you could breed discus (good quality adults sell ~ $70-$100 each) or you can go for fish that are harder to breed (like puffers) but that aquariasts still desire.

    Oh before you get into this, listen to Aquarium Co-Op's 'how to make $1000 breeding fish' series. Seriously.
    It's on You Tube

    Spoiler alert the answer is: Guppies, cherry shrimp and Java moss

    Yeah you could sell them online (are you thinking ebay, craigslist, stuff like that?)
    Also i dont know what you have in your area but lots of fish clubs hold quarterly fish auctions and/or lfs will help advertise or buy fish. Just keep your options open and im sure youll find lots or buyers.
