Help me start a business! :DD

So. I recently started an aquarium club for my area and now I have over 40 members and it is nothing short of thriving!! A few members keep complaining that they cannot get ahold of live food, so I thought it might be a good opportunity for me to make some extra cash by buying some live cultures and selling live food. A couple of things I would like to hear from you:

1. Best types of live food to grow WITH info on maintenance, cost, etc

2. What portions are customarily sold and what is reasonable pricing for each portion?

3. Where can I get starter cultures that are healthy and parasite free

Any info would be GREAT!!! Thanks everyone ahead of time :D

Grindals, white worms and fry foods such as microworms and vinegar eels are all really easy to culture and propagate. I sell/trade some of my cultures when I end up with too many.

Honestly, you are probably not going to make a lot of money from live food cultures. I sell starter MW cultures for a $3 or so as a lot of stores seem to have mature cultures for $5. Grindals seem to be harder for some people to culture (never been an issue for me) so they can ask a higher price.

You can pick up cultures from individual hobbyists, online suppliers and brick and mortar stores. I would think the best cultures would come from places where they harvest cultures regularly to feed a lot of fish. This will most likely give you the best maintained cultures.
