Yes, I will be. But only on my rules. For instance, the one store I may pass on since they want quantity... And I cannot breed like a mill. I must breed responsibly.

If you're going to start with online --> What about speaking with someone in the US to form a mutual "referral" service? If a customer in the US contacts you, you refer that person to your US contact.... And if someone in Canada contacts a US seller, that person refers the customer to you?

I'm thinking it would be an informal arrangement, but with a US breeder whose quality you trust....

And if you don't want to ship long distance, you could extend this network to other Canadian breeders who are outside of your area.

It would be like 'word of mouth,' but instead of customers referring their friends, it would be breeders referring potential buyers to breeders who could supply them with the fish they want.

My brain isn't working for some reason, so if it's not making sense, let me know and I'll try again later. LOL

Actually it does make sense

If someone says, for example "wish you were in use" I could tell them there is a breeder ______ in _______ who ships across usa, and breeds _____ tailtype. And vice versa.

I also know I can get fish from ontario more safely, and faster, thanks to a member on here, who resides in Calgary :)

sounds fantastic!!! I wish I could open a fish store but money and the current market makes it almost impossible and the fish store that I have been going to for many many years is struggling. I could never think of opening just a betta store though, around here they don't seem to be that popular and are defiantly misunderstood.

Yes, exactly. This would allow all of you to benefit. You'd help out other breeders, and they'd help you out.
