Hi all,

I’ve been keeping fish for a long time and want to dedicate some of my fish room to breeding clown fish.

I’m not expecting to make loads of money, it’s more out of interested and as a hobby.

If I’m successful in breeding, is it easy enough to sell on the fish afterwards to stores, as although I have a lot of tanks I won’t have room for them all 😊

Never tried, but I imagine so at the right price. It'll be pretty low I'd think, as the big suppliers will sell them clowns for peanuts, and supply a guarantee.

Most stores I've dealt with in the past normally give store credit as opposed to cash , or swap out for similar valve fish .

That would be fine, I just want to be able to move them on and any money I did make would go back into the hobby anyway.
