    I am about to begin breeding kribensis cichlids and I have two questions:
    1. Can I make profit off of quality krib?
    2. I'm a bit confused about "making profit off of fish". I know it means selling my fish, but do I take it to a store to do this? I am not looking for a bunch of money or even any, I just need fish backup plans.
    Thank you for all your help.:)

    You aren't going to make any money selling fry. You'll need to grow them out to sell them - the bigger they are the more they will bring. Making money selling fish is quite a project. Do you have extra tanks to raise these fish?

    Yes I do, and sorry, I meant once they were adults. I will have a grow out tank, as i am at the planning stage. I have one back up place for some of them (my friend, who yes is good with fish).

    If you don't like any of the local stores around you, you can set up an AquaBid account and sell on there. This usually involves shipping, though, unless you can find a market of local pick-ups.

    If you want to make a buisness out of it you need to turn rooms into fish farms, but if you have a few fish you can still sell them for some money. Selling them to stores can get you credit or money - not all will accept livestock though. And you wil get probably less money than it took you to raise them.
