Just wanted to share a success story. I brought in some fancy guppies from Twin Cities Guppies almost a year ago with the intent of doing fish for profit, inspired by Cory's series. My area had a dearth of quality guppies, seemingly because all the local breeders had moved on to other live-bearers and cichlids, so I decided to go for it in my 40 gallon. I've definitely diverged from Cory's advice by going specific strain as opposed to nice mutts, and I'm doing it in a much bigger tank than a 10 or 20, but apparently I've hit the market right. I've only been selling them to my store for the last three months, and just today they've called asking me for more, apparently demand is through the roof. The last time I delivered, I sold them 30 fish and they were sold out within a week. I'm actually running up to the point we're I don't know if I can keep up with the volume, which is an exciting problem to run into. I understand this might be a boom and bust scenario, and I'm okay with that; I'm very patient, and I've got some other breeding projects in the works to take its place. It's just really gratifying to have the fish store call you instead of the typical other way around, and I wanted to share that mark of success with you all. Thanks for all the support and tips!
