Hi!! So I was wondering if I could make a little money on the side to help with my fish keeping, and I was wondering; is breeding fish easy? And if so a list of proper equipment please. And where would I sell them? Thanks in advance!!
I’m 19.A second job? How old are you?
Do I need like a specific breeders tank? Or can I just put a male, and a female, in a tank, and they should breed? (This just goes to show you how much I know about breeding!!)Mollies are super easy, I started with 4 and currently have about 50ish but as others have said you won't get much for them. But I have learned a lot from them.
if I where to breed really nice guppies, could I sell them to my LFS Lynn78too? That thought just acured to me!!Unfortunately the easy fish are just that, easy. You have the unfortunate issue of a low demand. Although you live in the country and there may not be may fish stores around you, there probably isn't a very high demand for them either. Also, live bearers are like water rabbits. They will breed like there's no tomorrow and you will find that there are plenty of people giving away their pet quality guppies and mollies. Now if you have high quality guppies that you are selling on eBay or something, that's different but as someone said, it's a lot of time you invest in shipping fish. I was give 5 male guppies only 1 of them was a female. That female had over 60 babies that we could count. The fish store wouldn't buy them but were willing to take them. No one else wanted to pay for them either. There was one fish store that was willing to give me $.05/each. They were going to be sold as feeders.
