oldfishlady- hmmm i dint even think of that... actually, if he wanted to work out something with store credit i would probably be willing to do that, the place is awesome and i would probably spend about half of it there anyway xDD (i was just there yesterday and i think i might be going back pretty soon to get a bunny :D)
i figured that it wold probably depend alot on the color and developement, that makes sense too.
i was thinking that i would be really lucky to get a contract, it seems like that would be the kind of thing pet stores would avoid unfortunately for breeders. but i will demand that i get to see where he will keep them, i want to know what he does to sick fish, or old fish. and if he wont sign a contract, ill be checking in anyway, and i if i see something i dont like, then i wont sell them there anymore. honestly though, i think he seems like a good guy, and i know you cant just trust that but i have high hopes for him and a high opinion of everything that ive seen so far there, so ill see where that takes me :)
i also know that death is an unfortunate part of dealing with animals, whether you breed or not. and i know i cant insist that he hand out care sheets unless it was in a contract, which is not very likely. but i dont see why he would protest me making them and putting them in the store, because from what ive seen he does take very good care of all animals in his pet shop, so i think he would be open to at least mentioning them to customers.
honestly, i would take the contract over a good profit, because i get ridiculously attached to animals and i know that if i raise baby fish it will be no different. i have already relized that not every one of them is going to survive, and a relative few of them will probably get really good homes that know how to properly care for a betta, but anything i can do to up that number even a little, i will do. :)
and thank you :)
