I've read through the list of questions and i've answered most of them. I've read through the list of equipment and I am starting to acquire them.
The one thing I have not read on here is about selecting pairs. I am a first time breeder and I don't really want to spend 30-40 dollars per fish and end up having them get killed or injured badly in the process. Is it okay to use a petco fish for your first few spawns to get a hold of it and then from there get a "nicer" fish?
I don't plan on making any money from selling the fry but i do have a few homes set up for them.
To all those breeders, did you start with a petco fish and move up or what?
Thanks in advance to everybody
