How do you find a local fish breeder?

    Hey everyone!

    I absolutely hate buying fish from big stores like Petco, not only because of the way that they are bred, but also because they are much harder to keep alive in the first few months. I'm wondering what some tactics are for finding a local fish breeder. I've tried googling, but it's hard to find someone when people doesn't advertise too much. I don't really want to pay $35 for overnight shipping, so does anyone have a strategy for getting local, healthy stock?

    Have a look on facebook for groups local to you, fish clubs probably have pages like they do over here & they'll know all the breeders.
    Look for fish selling/swapping groups too as breeders often sell surplus stock on those pages.

    Agreed. Look for local fish clubs that will usually give you a good number of breeders and smaller stores that might suit your needs.
