Which would you buy?

Though they may not all be FISH, I didn't know whether to stick them in finless, or other fish

Anyways, long story short I wouldn't mind breeding something that would in the end be a little more profitable, so I'm just adding a poll to see what would be more desired, and what's not. And I'm not breeding until I am absolutely certain of the breed, species, care, etc. =D

Of course the poll won't automatically determine what I will breed, but it will help. My roomie has dealt with most of these that are named, breeding and keeping-wise so he can help me out

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

I'm not sure if they breed in captivity though.

hmmm never thought of that =D

And it's "possible" just a lengthy, more....elaborate set up rather than sticking two in a tank. They tend to breed better in something that mimics their habitat VERY well. It'd be a time consuming project.

What about breeding a quality pair of bettas, you'll make a nice profit off of that if you choose the right pair

I obviously have the cruddiest luck with bettas. :/ and here, no one wants bettas, unless they are cheap. Like...dirt cheap. and dirt cheap doesn't cover set up D:

Yea betta aren't worth it really.
Mudskippers are expensive, they need brackish water and a pretty smart set up, but you could easily net $100 a piece for them.
Or fire belly toads, cheaper set up and breed a lot easier.

they are pretty interesting.... I'd have to ship them here though, since the ONE I saw here, is RARE and severely costly!! D: But, I'll have some extra money so I can do this kind cooleo stuff x)
