Bro and friends opening a fish store

My brother and some of his friends may open a fish store by my house!! They want me to breed their bettas!!! Here are my requirements:

Our "betta kits" must include everything needed for a proper setup.
Fish are kept in jars rather than cups
Fish are kept clean
Fish are sold with detailed care sheets
Fish are sold with little details (personality, age, aggression)
And I get free fish stuff...hehe.

BTW this is no sure thing yet just an idea. But if so...off to Walmart for breeing pairs XD

No dont breed walmart fish lol. Get a proper pair form aquabid or something. And DONT breed fish until you know for sure the store idea is going to happen.

I breed bettas already, HMPK blue dragons to be exact. I was kidding about Wlamart, I have one female from Walmart as a pet though but she's super prone to bacterial infections.

Aquabid seems a little to much to spend for fish to be sold as pets, of course culls from my current breeding might be sold for a higher price.

Veil tails and crown tails from PetCo or PetsMart will work fine if this happens and I want to start a pure bred VT line anyway (requiring petsotre fish since no one has a good line).

And a new idea: Any fish not sold within a 2 week period is shipped 100% free to any customer of my more quality bettas who wants him/her.

I just got my betta from a LPS and think that that's what they're doing, selling stock that doesn't quite fit the bill from a local breeder. It could probably work very well for you as well as your brother's store. They'd get a nice selection of beautiful fish. :)

Here's my guy from the LPS, Gyrados ($12.99 at Whitie's Pets in Fresno, CA)

Yes but remember quality bettas require more work. Probably more than a new betta owner can give them (especially fish that are products of generations of inbreeding) this is also even if they open the store. I would get some nice bettas to sell like PetCo does....hehe I want some of 1fish2fish's bettas anyway :P
