    My German blue rams are breeding now and the fry are doing very well. So I was wondering if you guys knew of any places or stores that would buy the fry once the grow up. And also how much to sell them for.

    Some Lfs will take them but you won't get much if anything for them in my experience.
    They can buy them in so cheaply from importers it's not worth it to them to pay you more for them.
    You could try selling them on local facebook groups or craigslist & similar sites if they allow fish sales

    Agreed^ It's quite hard to breed fish for profit unless they're un-common. You may be able to trade them to stores for credit for fish food, other fish, chemicals etc.
    You'd usually only get $2 for fry from most stores as they can source so many so quickly.

    Tank bred fish sell very well on Ebay and Aquabid ;)

    Yeah pet shops won't give you much money for them. They might just give you store credit. I suggest maybe selling them on craigslist or Facebook groups
