Value of turquoise HM?

I am thinking about starting a line of HM turquoise fish. I would like to know what one is worth before starting and if I might have trouble finding homes for them. I will be selling to to people in CA if I do spawn.

Depends on the quality and color. A good show one could get you $20 or more if it's a rare color . Average everyday hm $5-$10 . It depends a lot on the fish.

You are going to have to ship all over the country if you wants to move the fish.

Turquoise is not a rare color. Quite common in fact. Turquoise is one of the IRID colors.

If you want to break even and make your fish pay for them self it is worth it to invest in quality stock. Get a pair that people would be will to pay good money for.

Basement bettas has some nice ones.

The trick with common colours is to breed them well... No red wash and good form are essential for good sales.

If your trying to make a profit in breeding
Don't go with the hm
The value will b higher for a single fish
But the cost, time n space of rearing is three time as much

The cost, time, and space is pretty much the same no matter the fin type...

Yea, I agree with Matt. HMs are worth way more than most except some HMPKs IMO.
